ALGONQUIN – Plans for a medical marijuana dispensary in Algonquin have stalled.
Ross Morreale, representing ILDISP III LLC, received approval from the Village Board in January 2017 for a special use permit to operate a medical marijuana dispensary at 1154 N. Main St., Algonquin.
The permit would have allowed the company to build an attached garage to the property to provide space for secure deliveries and removal of waste product.
Algonquin Community Development Director Russ Farnum said Morreale would have to come before the board again for approval because the permit expired at the end of 2017. The company hasn’t reached out to the village since February 2017, Farnum said.
The State of Illinois’ Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act became effective in January 2014 and expires in July 2020, according to village documents. The act allows for one medical marijuana dispensary in McHenry County.
The program allows for up to 60 dispensing organizations to be licensed
