Frequently Asked Questions

The Board has rescheduled a number of appeal hearing sessions so that parties may have a chance to have their appeals resolved sooner. Due to unprecedented numbers of appeals being filed related to cannabis stores, the Board had scheduled appeal hearing sessions as late as March 2019. The Board has added meeting days to its normal schedule and drawn on additional resources in order to accelerate these appeals.

Yes. Although the high volume of appeals received by the Board is due to the number of cannabis store development permit decisions made by the Development Authority (i.e., The City’s Planning Department), all appeals on the Board’s schedule have been considered for rescheduling. All appeals that had sessions originally scheduled on or after November 27, 2018 were considered in planning the rescheduling of appeals.

The Board is holding additional meetings on Wednesdays and Thursdays in order to accommodate the rescheduling effort. The Board will revisit this strategy in January 2019 to determine whether the need for additional meeting days still exists.

Individuals who have already been identified as being associated with the appeal by the Board (e.g. applicants, owners, appellants, community associations, persons attending hearings) will, wherever possible, receive email notification of the rescheduling of the appeal. In addition, considerable print, radio and social media advertising and communication efforts have been arranged by the Board’s administration to ensure there is broad awareness of rescheduling of appeals.

Adjournment requests are not granted automatically; the decision is made on the day of the hearing by the Board. Each request is considered on its own merits and in light of submissions from other parties to the appeal.

You may submit a written request for an adjournment, including the reasons for the request, to Board Administration as soon as possible by emailing it to

If you are unable to submit the request in writing, you should make a verbal request to the Board at the time of the scheduled hearing session.

Finally, please note that if you are unable to attend the hearing session to speak to your adjournment request, you should have someone attend on your behalf. You, or someone on your behalf, should be at the hearing to speak to the adjournment request and, in the case that your request is denied, to present evidence to the Board on the merits of the appeal. If someone attends on your behalf, he or she may be required to provide written confirmation from you that he or she is authorized to speak on your behalf.
