Arlington, MA – The Arlington Redevelopment Board has decided to delay a decision on a proposed medical marijuana facility in town, reports the Arlington Advocate.

During its meeting on Aug. 22, the redevelopment board did not vote on an application from the Massachusetts Patient Foundation, reports the Advocate. The hearing will be continued on Sept. 12.

The Arlington Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to approve a community benefit agreement with the Massachusetts Patient Foundation (MPF), which takes additional steps in the process of bringing a facility to town.

According to the agreement, MPF will pay three percent of its retail sales to Arlington, as well as a one-time payment of $100,000 within one week of opening. MPF is also required to submit annual financial records to the town, as well as any filings with the Massachusetts Department of Health.
