The Clerk’s Office created new fillable forms for stakeholders and operator/employees.

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. The Phase 2 criteria is available at lansingmi.gov/marijuana.
