Development Review Board powered through a full agenda at the Welcome Center that included approval of a downtown cannabis store plan

ST. JOHNSBURY — Aided at times by a cell phone flashlight due to a lack of electricity, the Development Review Board powered through a full agenda at the Welcome Center that included approval of a downtown cannabis store plan. Shortly after DRB Chair Rich Lyon called the meeting to order at 7 p.m., the lights went out and stayed that way for the duration. Only two days beyond the longest day of the year, the meeting, attended by four DRB members and about a dozen members of the public, carried on thanks to sufficient daylight through several west-facing windows. Cell phone flashlights were needed a couple of times to read from documents.
