Providence, RI (January 2, 2018) – Councilman Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. is urging the Providence Zoning Board of Review not to approve a special use permit requested for 67 Batcheller Avenue for a proposed compassion center/marijuana dispensary. 


“I want to be very clear, I’m not opposed to compassion centers,” stated Councilman Nicholas J. Narducci Jr. “I’m only opposed to this specific site because its location is almost completely surrounded by family homes. I realize that this area is zoned for commercial enterprise, but this is not the right place for a compassion center. I hope the zoning review board will consider my concerns when they meet next week.”


Donovan Obair LLC and SEACAP Holdings RI I, LLC have submitted an application for a Special Use Permit from the Providence Zoning Board of Review for the operation of a Compassion Center/Cultivation Center for medical cannabis at 67 Bacheller Avenue.  The Zoning Board of Review will be meeting on January 10, 2018, at 5:30 pm at 444 Westminster Avenue, in the first-floor conference room to vote on the matter then.


For more information, please contact the City Council office at 401-521-7477.
