Retail pot shop goes back before Brunswick Planning Board on Tuesday

BRUNSWICK — A business hoping to become Brunswick’s first retail marijuana store will go back before the planning board Tuesday evening after a previous attempt proved unsuccessful due to an oversight in the town’s zoning. 

Plans for the store have remained the same since first presented to town officials in February. 

Michael DiPersia, representing GJoris LLC, wants to build a 3,100-square-foot, single-story recreational marijuana retail store in the Brunswick Industrial Park.

DiPersia and Joseph Marden, project manager with civil engineering and surveying firm Sitelines, said the yet-to-be-named store, located at 4 Business Parkway, will be designed to have a “destination retail feel.”

The project will go to a public hearing on Tuesday and the planning board is scheduled to decide on the conditional use permit and final development review immediately afterward. 

The project proposes 64 parking spaces, with the option to add 18 more later on if needed.
