NYS Cannabis Control Board (CCB) February 16th Meeting Public Comment Form

You need to specifically mention the addresses of 465 and 386 as being against granting a permit to these locations for any of the following reasons:

1. in a neighborhood not zoned for high volume commercial businesses

2. too close to residential housing

3. too close to each other (2 blocks)

4. too close to schools, houses of worship

5. in a busy corridor where children pass in high volume daily

6. the 10 block corridor is oversaturated with bars and liquor/beer businesses
