The Steamboat Springs Planning Commission meeting lasted only a few minutes Thursday evening.

The only item on the agenda was a development plan application to allow Natural Choice Co-Op to establish a retail marijuana store, cultivation and infused product manufacturing at a unit in Downhill Drive Plaza in West Steamboat.

The conditional-use permit was recommended by the Planning Commission and is set to go before the Steamboat Springs City Council on May 5.

Natural Choice Co-Op is a current medical marijuana cooperative and is the last of Steamboat’s three licensed marijuana centers to go through the city process to establish a retail operation. The city's ordinance governing retail marijuana allows for only three stores.
