Akron City Council on Monday approved local zoning requests made by Galenas Labs LLC and Galenas Wellness, LLC, to construct a medical marijuana processing plant and dispensary, respectively.

Each operation is subject to state approval and final approval from local officials, including Akron police.

The dispensary would open in an empty Chapel Hill storefront at 1912 Buchholzer Blvd.

The processing plant would be attached to an already approved indoor grow site at 1956 South Main St.
