Hilliard City Council nixes plan for medical marijuana dispensary in Mill Run – The Columbus Dispatch

Hilliard City Council has rejected a measure that could have led to a medical marijuana dispensary – the city’s first such business – in Mill Run.

On Nov. 8, council members Tom Baker, Les Carrier, Omar Tarazi and Pete Marsh voted against a modification of a planned-unit-development zoning that was required for a dispensary to open at 3799 Park Mill Run Drive.

Kelly McGivern, Andy Teater and Cynthia Vermillion voted in favor of the PUD modification.

Council’s decision overturned a 5-0 recommendation to approve the measure by the Hilliard Planning and Zoning Commission on Oct. 14.

If the PUD modification had been approved, the site would have been under consideration during an upcoming lottery for licenses to operate a medical marijuana dispensary.

The application to open a medical marijuana dispensary was Hilliard’s first such request, according to David Ball, director of communications for Hilliard.
