Berkley Back on Track for Marijuana Business Applications

Berkley Back on Track for Marijuana Business Applications

The City’s internal marihuana policy team has been hard at work crafting an updated process for opening the application period for marihuana business licenses in Berkley. The City of Berkley initially planned to open the application process at the beginning of March and close it at the end of the month. Due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and sudden measures implemented by the State and local levels, this prevented the original process from moving forward as expected.

“We are very excited to get the application process back up and running,” stated Dan Hill, Berkley’s Public Policy Assistant. “After postponing the last process, the policy team ultimately began looking at how we could continue our process while increasing safety and finding ways to limit potential exposure to health concerns.”

In order to limit in-person contact and protect the health of staff, applicants, and their families, the City has adjusted the marihuana submission process.

Applicants may submit their application materials either by certified postage or by using the City Hall secure dropbox (3338 Coolidge Hwy. Berkley MI, 48072).

Within their submission, applicants must include:

● Three identical flash drives;

● A signed original of the application;

● Payment of the application fees

The marihuana business license process is scheduled to begin Monday, June 15, 2020, and will conclude Monday, June 29, 2020.

All applications submitted by mail must be postmarked no later than the deadline.
