The application by D&B Wellness, one of the six medical marijuana producers to receive state approval, was denied last month by the Bridgeport Planning and Zoning Commission. This week, the Redding Water Pollution Control Commission was presented with a plan to set up a dispensary on Old Mill Road. According to minutes of the meeting, the plans call for a high level of security and to be operated as an "appointment only" facility in the former bank building.
The plan calls for four employees to staff the only dispensary location in Fairfield County.
Commissioners questioned the amount of water to be used by the operation because there would only be one bathroom available, and one hand washing sink. The water needed for the operation was approved.
D&B's license will expire May 15th if they don't receive zoning approval somewhere. An application has yet to be filed with the Redding Zoning Enforcement officer or the Zoning Commission, which meets on Thursday.
