Recreational (Adult-Use) Marihuana Establishment Application Process

Application Process Timeline

The City of Royal Oak will be accepting applications for recreational marihuana establishment licenses from December 7, 2020 - February 1, 2021. Once that window closes, the city will evaluate all applications for awarding licenses. If there are more applications than licenses available for each type of marihuana establishment, the city will conduct its evaluation of applications on a competitive basis.


An applicant must pay a $500 document review fee at the time of application. Once an applicant is awarded a municipal license slot, the applicant must pay an additional $4,500 application fee.
