Community Meeting on Medical Marijuana Dispensary


Buncher site at Squirrel Hill-Greenfield border, Forward at Beechwood ramp

Buncher site at Squirrel Hill-Greenfield border, Forward Ave at Beechwood ramp

There’s a building at the corner of Forward Avenue, Beechwood Blvd, and the Parkway East off-ramp that you probably don’t look at very often. It’s the former home of The Buncher Company, circled in red above.

The Buncher Company, partnering with Keystone Relief Centers, wants to turn this building into a medical marijuana dispensary.

Medical marijuana is a new use in Pennsylvania so the building must have a Special Use Exception zoning permit before it can proceed.

The Zoning Board listens to community feedback as part of making its decision.  Before the zoning hearing occurs, scheduled for May 25, Squirrel Hill and Greenfield will have an opportunity to learn about the project and give it a thumbs up or down.

The Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition (SHUC) and Greenfield Community Association (GCA) invite you to a public meeting to learn more about Keystone Relief Centers’ proposed medical marijuana dispensary at 3550 Forward Avenue/ Buncher Property.

WHAT: A Community Presentation and Discussion: Zoning Application for “Special Use Exception” for a Medical Marijuana Dispensary at 3885 Forward Ave.

WHEN: Wednesday / May 17, 2017 / 6:30pm – 8:00pm

WHERE:  At the Children’s Institute (1405 Shady Ave., Squirrel Hill), in the Multi-Purpose Room

Please join Councilman Corey O’Connor, representatives from Keystone Relief Centers, and members from SHUC and the GCA as we learn about and discuss what this Zoning Board of Adjustments (ZBA) special use exception would mean at this gateway corner into our two communities.
