SPARC, the SoMa medical marijuana dispensary that hopes to open a second location in the Lower Haight's former Good Fellows space, is holding a community meeting this Monday, November 9th, at 6pm at Two Jacks (401 Haight). Representatives from SPARC will introduce themselves, lay out their plans and address any questions or concerns from the community.
SPARC, which already has a location at 1256 Mission St. in SoMa, has already managed to win over its Haight landlord, who was wary about leasing to another dispensary. "We showed the landlord our trained safety staff and our plans for a professional-looking space," SPARC executive director Robert Jacob told us in September. The original location of SPARC won a prestigious American Institute of Architects award for design.
