The third marijuana business in three weeks has been approved by the city of Bellevue, according to permitting documents.

The third marijuana business in three weeks has been approved by the city of Bellevue, according to permitting documents.

Higher Leaf, a proposed cannabis retail store in Eastgate, has been approved with conditions. The site is on a .47-acre lot on the corner of Southeast 30th Place and 156th Avenue Southeast. With the exception of a Starbucks Coffee location directly south, the location is surrounded by Office and Office and Limited Business zoning restrictions. The site itself is zoned as Community Business.

The building previously housed a medical office and meets all standards for 1,000-foot separation between marijuana businesses and schools, parks, child care centers, playgrounds and libraries, among others.

No major changes to the building’s exterior are planned.

In the preceding weeks a grow operation was approved in the Richards valley area and another retailer was approved in Factoria, even after a city council mandate limiting the growth of the cannabis industry in the city for six months.

All three businesses had submitted permits before the moratorium.
