A mobile marijuana delivery service would be a component of the operation, as well.

RIVERSIDE, CA – The Board of Supervisors is slated Tuesday to decide whether to grant permits for the establishment of a cannabis store just northwest of Lake Elsinore, in what would be only the third such enterprise authorized to operate in unincorporated areas of Riverside County.

Empire Connect is seeking approval of a conditional use permit and a development agreement with the county to set up shop near the intersection of Macy Street and Grand Avenue, in the community of Lakeland Village.

The other two cannabis stores were approved by the board last year in Highgrove.

The county Planning Commission has signed off on Empire Connect’s proposal to operate a 4,500-square-foot distribution outlet between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily.

But there has already been a petition submitted by concerned residents opposing Empire Connect’s request. Some of the signers are expected to address the board during Tuesday’s hearing, which is expected to last about two hours.

The neighboring city of Lake Elsinore has spaces specifically zoned for prospective cannabis operations, confined to light industrial areas.
