Waterford Township currently hosts three cannabis outlets and has approved licenses for three additional ones. Among these new enterprises is DNVK 1, which has encountered delays in opening its medical marijuana provisioning center at 2460 Dixie Highway.

Despite being granted an extension last October to ensure the site would be construction-ready by December 31st, 2023, and completed by this month, DNVK 1 has faced significant obstacles. The company has applied for a two-year extension for the demolition and construction phases, citing difficulties in gaining access to the property.

The property, known as the Sherwood Motel, has been functioning as an apartment building. DNVK 1's co-founder, Marvin Karana, explained in an appeal that the owner has struggled to lawfully and timely vacate and evict tenants from the premises.

Supporting DNVK 1's extension request, Sherwood Motel owner Mehangkumar Patel indicated that it would take a minimum of four months to issue 30-day notices to the tenants and proceed with the necessary District Court actions.

Waterford Township trustees are scheduled to discuss this issue further during a study session at 4 p.m. on Monday, June 24th, in Conference Room 3-2 of the township hall. This will be followed by a business meeting at 6 p.m. in the township hall auditorium located at 5200 Civic Center Drive, Waterford. The full agenda for the meeting is available online here.
