For the Los Alamos Community Plan Area, the preliminarily top-ranked applicant is Haven X LLC for a store at 520 Bell St., followed by Honalee Management, which hopes to do business as Cottonwood Roots at 315 Bell St.
Companies that hoped to open a store in Orcutt, and their proposed locations, include Strategic Golden LLC at 155 E. Clark Ave. and Haven IX LLC at 235 E. Clark Ave., both locations in Old Town, and East Clark SB OPCO LLC at 1604 E. Clark Ave., Building B, Suite 1, a block west of Highway 101.
The remaining two Orcutt applicants are SLO Cultivation Inc., doing business as Cresco California, at 3550 Orcutt Road, Building C4, in the Evergreen Center, and JCSB Ventures LLC, doing business as Beyond/Hello, at 3596 Orcutt Road, currently occupied by Medina Tire.
Should the first-ranked applicant choose not to move forward in the permit and license process, the opportunity will pass to the second-ranked applicant and so on down the line.
Applicants were ranked by a committee consisting of an assistant county executive officer and two senior staff members, as specified in the county’s cannabis ordinances.
Rankings were based on an inspection of the proposed store location and a review of applicants’ Neighborhood Compatibility Plans, which had to include customer education, community education, community involvement, odor control, parking and neighborhood design compatibility plans.
