As you review the General Instructions, please note the importance of reviewing the confirmation email.

• It is the responsibility of the submitter to ensure they receive a confirmation email confirming the receipt of their application. If you do NOT receive an email with a confirmation number within 24 hours it is the submitter’s responsibility to notify the Clerk’s Office in writing at city.clerk@lansingmi.gov.

• The confirmation email will have an attachment with a list of the documents submitted. If you have submitted the wrong document prior to the deadline for provisioning center application submission or if any document you uploaded does not appear on your confirmation email, please notify the Clerk’s Office immediately in writing at city.clerk@lansingmi.gov.

All files submitted must be in PDF format, and should be named with the document name provided on the checklist, followed by your Applicant LLC/LLP/Corp name and facility street address (i.e. Net Worth- ABC Meds- 1234 Any Street).

The Clerk’s Office created new fillable forms for stakeholders and operator/employees. The stakeholder form includes the required Treasury and Background Investigation release forms, along with the Financial Resources and Morals, Good Order and Welfare Litigation History forms. Some of these forms require notarization prior to submission. The Operator/Employee form includes the Background Investigation release form.

Phase 2 Criteria has been updated within the confines of the Ordinance. The City Clerk will award more points for being located further away from other provisioning centers and to encourage more investment in the City both in hiring and construction.
