Village of Homer Receives Another Application Notice For Cannabis Dispensary


During the Village Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, November 14th, the village received another notice of a business who plans to submit an application for an adult-use retail dispensary license within the Village of Homer.

The applicant is Kush Hills, Inc. with a proposed location at 93 Clinton Street in the village (the A-Frame building). The applicant is required to provide 30-days notice to their local municipality before submitting an application.

“Again we got nothing to say, except that we’ve received it.” Board of Trustee, Ed Finkbeiner said regarding the notice.

Deputy Mayor, Pat Clune, said there was some concern of the location’s proximity to the Homer Intermediate school, but said the state would do the official measuring. Dispensaries must be at least 500 feet away from schools.

“It’s a lottery at this point.” Mayor Hal McCabe said to the board. “They’re (New York State Office of Cannabis Management) just drawing names.” Noting essentially how the state is choosing which applicants will receive a cannabis dispensary license.

“We can express an opinion, but it won’t amount to anything.” Clune said in reply to fellow Board member Kevin Slack asking if the village could vote against the notification.

A site plan will be submitted to the village shortly, Village of Homer Treasurer Tanya Digennaro said to the board as it is required.
