SUMMARY STATEMENT:

The State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office, has notified the City of Valdez that they have received a completed application for a Standard Marijuana Cultivation Facility, License #10043, from Michael R. Liljedahl DBA, Alaskan Greenery.

A local government may protest the approval of an application pursuant to 3 AAC 306.060 by furnishing the director and the applicant with a clear and concise written statement of reasons for the protest within 60 days of the date of this notice. If a protest is filed, the board will deny the application unless the board finds that the protest is arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.

3 AAC 306.010 (c) provides that the board will not issue a license when a local government protests an application on the grounds that the applicant’s proposed licensed premises are located in a place within the local government where a local zoning ordinance prohibits the marijuana establishment, unless the local government has approved a variance from the local ordinance. The property associated with this license request described as Lot 3E, USS 3563, is currently zoned as Light Industrial. Marijuana cultivation facilities are a permitted principal use in a Light Industrial Zone under Section 17.36.020 (G) of the Valdez Municipal Code.

The application and all attachments as submitted by the Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office have been reviewed by the Valdez Police Department and the Community Development Department for compliance with local regulation. The Valdez Police Department and the Community Development Department express no concern with the issuance of this license by the State of Alaska Alcohol & Marijuana Control Board.
