WICKER PARK — The owner of a proposed medical marijuana dispensary headed by three pharmacists is seeking a special use permit to operate out of a former wine shop about two blocks east of Wicker Park's main hub at Milwaukee, Damen and North avenues.

Professional Midwest Dispensary has applied for a special use permit to open at 1811 W. North Ave. in the former Cellar Rat wine shop, which closed earlier this year.

Marron is scheduled to meet with members of the Wicker Park Committee's preservation and development subcommittee (P&D) at the group's monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Wicker Park Field House, 1425 N. Damen Ave.

The group did not meet with another company interested in selling marijuana in Wicker Park, Modern Medicine Dispensary at 1368 N. Milwaukee Ave., prior to that dispensary's special use permit being approved the city. There was "not enough of an outcry" to oppose the permit, Tamminga said.

In addition to Modern Medicine Dispensary, another dispensary, operated by IL Grown Medicine, also seeks a special use permit to operate at 1300-08 W. North Ave, in a 3,500-square-foot storefront across from Home Depot.
