WEST LOOP— Two companies will pitch neighbors on their plans for weed dispensaries on Randolph Street’s popular Restaurant Row during a pair of community meetings next week.

NuMed Chicago, LLC will detail its plans for 935 W. Randolph St. at a 6 p.m. meeting Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 656 W. Randolph St., according to the West Loop Community Organization, which will host the meeting alongside Ald. Walter Burnett Jr. (27th).

The company would need a special-use permit to sell recreational weed at the location.

A representative from the mayor’s office will be on hand during the meeting, according to a notice sent out by the West Loop Community Organization.

On Thursday. Feb. 6, Natural Care Company and Foley & Lardner LLP will host a community meeting on their West Loop dispensary proposal at 6 p.m. at Revel Fulton Market, 1215 W. Fulton Market Ave.

Earlier this month, six companies submitted zoning requests for dispensaries at 20 locations across the city.

Windy City Cannabis submitted zoning applications to open a shop at various West Loop locations including 807 W. Randolph St. No two shops can open within 1,500 of each other. 

No date for a community meeting for Windy City Cannabis has been set, according to a city website.

The company will need to gain approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals.
