During its meeting on Tuesday, May 5, the Marquette City Planning Commission unanimously approved a special use permit application for a marijuana retail facility in South Marquette.

. It’s approved for use at 100 Genesee Street, at the current Farmer Q’s location.

City staff did raise questions about the current landscaping plans for the site potentially causing problems with nearby US-41. The special use permit was approved under conditions that Fresh Coast Provisioning works with the city on this issue.

“Staff recommends the following condition of approval: that an amended plan is submitted to meet staff comments, including discussion with the city arborist to amend the landscaping plan as per arborist suggestions,” said Sarah Mittlefehldt, member of the Planning Commission.

The plan was approved despite concerns from members about limited parking available at the site.

TV6 & FOX UP have reached out to Farmer Q's to find out what its future plans are.

This is the second approved special use permit for a marijuana retailer in Marquette.
