Colorado-based Altitude Organic Corporation told the board there would be 27 parking spaces for customers, with store hours daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The business is currently negotiating a host community agreement with the town through which it would agree to provide a set amount of money to the town in exchange for permission to operate.

Once the parties have agreed on the terms of that contract, the company will apply to the state Cannabis Control Commission for permission to open.

Altitude Organic president Aaron Bluse said in an interview following the Dec. 10 meeting that a community outreach meeting will be scheduled sometime next month.

“We would like to hire from the local community,” he said. “We want to give residents the first opportunity (to be hired).”

Bluse said the company hopes to open in the “second or third quarter” of 2019.
