Another Bainbridge Island business has submitted an application to be licensed as a legal marijuana growing operation — the eighth so far for the island — with the Washington State Liquor Control Board.
The Liquor Control Board updated its list of people and businesses that are seeking licenses to produce, process or sell legal marijuana on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
The updated list includes one new producer applicant from Bainbridge. Coyote Growery, located at 5940 Rose Loop NE, is seeking a license as a Tier 1 marijuana producer.
Tier 1 producers are allowed to have a less than 2,000 square feet of plant canopy.
According to the Liquor Control Board, the state now has in hand eight applications from Bainbridge applicants that have filed for producer licenses, and the state has also received six applications for licenses for marijuana processing businesses on the island.
Five applications have also been received from businesses that want to open a retail marijuana shop on Bainbridge.
The state plans to issue 334 licenses for retail pot shops, and Bainbridge Island has been selected for one of the locations. The state is not limiting the number of producer and processor licenses it will issue.
The Bainbridge Island Planning Commission will meet this week for the first of four workshops on updating the city's regulations on marijuana. The commission meets at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9 at city hall.
