RC Retail Amherst LLC, which operates as Red Cardinal, received unanimous approval to open East Amherst village center’s first recreational marijuana store last year. Now it plans to open one in historic Mechanics Hall.
According to Select Board Chair Karen Cruise the town signed an access agreement on April 6 with Red Cardinal, allowing it to “proceed with inspections, surveys, investigations and other non-invasive testing,” and in late April soil testing needed for septic design was performed. “The town and Red Cardinal are working on the purchase and sale document, which contains a perpetual historic preservation restriction that will be recorded with the deed,” Cruise said.
Stay tuned for additional information coming in a future Redemption Rock News issue.
