Step 3 - Reviews

For dispensaries, growers, and processors:

Once received, the application will be sent to the Planning and Zoning department, which will verify that the business is in the appropriate zoning. For dispensaries, the Planning and Zoning department will also verify that the business is not within 1000 feet of any school facility. If approved, the application will then be sent to Building Services and our Fire Prevention Team. Both departments will perform separate reviews and on-site inspections. Both departments will contact the applicant separately to schedule inspections.

For laboratories, transporters, and waste disposal licenses, please call the City Clerk’s Office for details.

FAQs

We do not require submission to state prior to application with the City of Edmond.

Payment for a Certificate of Compliance takes place after all department’s reviews and inspections have been completed.

We are unable to provide a standard timeline, due to variations with each application. The most common delays occur due to building or fire code violations that need to be corrected by the applicant.

This depends on what review has been failed. See potential scenarios below:
• If an application fails due to improper zoning the application will be denied completely, and the proposed use will not be allowed in that location, unless there is a zoning change for that site.
• If an application for a dispensary indicates the facility falls within the 1000’ exclusion zone for school facilities, the applicant will have two options:
1. Receive a denied Certificate of Compliance form at no charge. If the applicant choses this option, no other reviews or inspections will be performed.
2. Proceed with remaining inspections. If the application passes the remaining reviews and inspections, the applicant will receive a completed Certificate of Compliance form with any applicable lines marked “No.” If the applicant choses this option, normal licensing fees apply.
• If an application fails the fire prevention inspection, the applicant will have 30 days to correct violations before re-inspection. If the violation is corrected before 30 days, it is up to the applicant to contact their inspector to schedule an earlier inspection before the end of 30 days.
• If an application fails the Building Services inspection, the applicant will need to correct all violations before the application can be approved.
