North Battleford City Hall will be deciding on three separate discretionary land-use applications at its next meeting, including one to establish a retail cannabis outlet on 114 Street.

Council will vote on the requests on Aug. 20 at 8 p.m.

The town is considering future plans for the former St. Vital Church building, located at Central Avenue and 20 St. W. in Battleford, since the building needs significant upgrades. It was previously considered as a future site for a land-survey history museum. The town will have a public hearing in September to discuss the potential of de-designating the building as a municipal heritage property.
