A proposal to locate the Island’s first recreational marijuana dispensary off State Road in West Tisbury saw pushback from abutters at a Martha’s Vineyard Commission hearing Thursday night.

Commissioners also approved regulations for two special ways near the Vineyard Haven-West Tisbury town line and opened a public hearing on a land subdivision involving the Boys and Girls Club in Edgartown.

Patient Centric’s proposed recreational marijuana dispensary is planned for 510 State Road in the North Tisbury business district.

Principal Goeff Rose still needs to clear a gauntlet of regulatory approvals for the facility, including a permit from the state Cannabis Control Commission.

Mr. Rose has signed a community host agreement with the town of West Tisbury for the facility, and has already received approval at both the state and local level for a medical dispensary in Vineyard Haven.

At previous public hearings, State Road abutters voiced concerns about traffic and parking, prompting Mr. Rose to eliminate three employee spaces at the entrance of the lot and put in a six-foot stockade fence.

The new configuration allows for 20 customer parking spaces, Mr. Rose said Thursday. He also said Patient Centric has developed protocols for regulating the flow of customers into the store, with five people allowed in approximately every 15 minutes and five more allowed in the waiting area.

“There will never be more than 10 customers in that building,” Mr. Rose said.

But abutters said the changes to the plan were too minor, expressing worry about the increased intensity of use on the property once the facility opens.

Abby Rabinowitz of Tea Lane Associates, a real estate company which abuts the site on the north, spoke at length Thursday. She said traffic studies had not factored in the closure of the up-Island Cronig’s, and that the parking lot on the property was too small to handle the added traffic.

“My question really is, why has such a small lot been selected for such intense commercial use?” Ms. Rabinowitz said. “It should give everyone pause.”

Constance Goodwin, a town resident, felt similarly.

“The space is still too tight,” Ms. Goodwin said. “Given the impact and increase of use, it would still be an inappropriate spot to have this particular kind of business — a high-traffic business.”

Commissioners continued the public hearing to July 9.

In other business, the commission opened a public hearing on a complex plan by the Boys and Girls Club to subdivide approximately 22 acres of land off the Edgartown-West Tisbury Road into four separate parcels.

The subdivision was referred to the commission as a mandatory development of regional impact review.

A memorandum of understanding between the club and the town was approved at Edgartown town meeting this year, essentially swapping one of the land parcels for access and easements. The Boys and Girls Club is looking to use a 14-acre portion of the property for a new facility, while the town hopes to eventually use its parcel for an expansion to the town cemetery.

The undeveloped site is owned by the Philip J. Norton family and sits on wooded acreage that includes rare imperial moth habitat. The land was rated as “exceptional” by the commission.

During the public hearing, Edgartown planning board assistant Doug Finn said while he was initially opposed to the plan, he felt an agreement had been worked out that was beneficial to the applicant, the town and the Island.

“As a matter of fact, this plan actually improves on what we have now,” Mr. Finn said. “This does constitute an improvement to not only the town’s existing recreational area, but also the Boys and Girls Club.”

Commissioners closed the public hearing on the land subdivision and left the written record open for a week.

The commission also approved a set of regulations for Shubael Weeks Road and Red Coat Hill Road, ancient ways near the West Tisbury town line.

The ancient ways will now become included in the Island Roads district of critical planning concern. The designation also won approval from Tisbury voters at their annual town meeting last month.
