Keystone Integrated Care will present its plan for a medical marijuana dispensary in Greensburg to the city planning commission on Monday.

The dispensary is one of 52 approved by the state in June, and the only one in Westmoreland County.

Keystone Integrated Care has received a recommendation for approval from Greensburg's Historic and Architectural Review Board. Its plans need to be reviewed by the planning commission and city council before construction can begin.

Keystone Integrated Care shared a concept rendering of the new dispensary on the company's Instagram page .

Keystone Integrated Care's Greensburg Dispensary is located on the eastern edge of the downtown commercial business district and on the City's Gateway Zoning Overlay District along U.S. Route 30/Pittsburgh Street, and will meet the same municipal zoning and land use requirements as other commercial facilities located in the same zoning district §1141.49. ----- The general neighborhood consists primarily of commercially zoned properties with some residential properties and is compliant with §1161.26(b)(1), as no schools or child-care facilities are within 1000 feet, property line to property, of the proposed dispensary location. ----- #mmj #medicalmarijuana #terpenes #cannabis #indica #sativa #thc #cbd #marijuana #cannabisculture #pa #pgh #philly #724 #412 #215 #commonwealth #keystone #testing

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
