Elgin’s first recreational marijuana store gets approval from city hall

The Elgin City Council this week approved plans for High Haven, a 2,627-square-foot recreational marijuana dispensary located in the Clock Tower Plaza at National Street and South Grove Boulevard.

High Haven received council approval for a location on Randall Road last year, but the storefront lease has not yet been finalized after objections were raised by other tenants and some residents.

The company faced no objections to the Clock Tower Plaza location.

“I’m so glad you’re sticking with Elgin,” said Councilwoman Carol Rauschenberger.

Lizz Dietrich, High Haven board president, said that although Randall Road is a more visible location, “the retail area is difficult to get to and we have a lot of extra restrictions due to the nature of our business.” “That takes a lot of options off the table for us.”

Even so, “we’re confident this location will be adequate,” Dietrich said, adding that marketing will help.
