The Leicester Board of Selectmen are said to hold an emergency meeting on Monday night, November 26, 2018. The meeting will be held regarding the outrageous amount of traffic the new pot shop has been bringing to the town.

Cultivate, located on Main Street in Leicester, is the areas first pot shop to open. This past Sunday, November 25, 2018, was when a notice was issued regarding the parking, trafficking, and potential public safety issues surrounding the pot shop. Typically, Open Meeting Law requires that meetings be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance of scheduled time, however, in this case, that rule is pushed aside; emergency meetings do not need as much of an advance as regular meetings do.

Such concerns recently became relevant due to the initial forecast of customers growing in number by the day. In other words, the projected number of customers and traffic surrounding the pot shop were not as large as the true outcome. Traffic situations and customers have grown in number since the first day Cultivate opened. The meeting will address all stated claims, and the plan is to address the situations in a timely manner.

The meeting is scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Town Hall.

Cultivate opened approximately one week ago, on Tuesday, November 20, 2018. Business has been extremely hectic since that day. Customers have been waiting in line for hours nearly every single day. On Cultivate’s opening day, the pot shop helped and served over 1,000 customers.

Ever since day one of Cultivate, the extremely busy and popular shop has seen an increase in high volume sales. The projected period to which this was expected to happen has exceeded all expectations. While that is very important to the Cultivate employees, they would still like to emphasize that their number one mission is to be good neighbors in the community. The company told the public in a statement this morning that they want to work with the town and do everything they possibly can to improve parking and have all traffic situations be handled smoothly and properly.
