Strain LLC wants to operate in the former Fitness Revolution building in Orleans.

ORLEANS — With an average resident age of 62, Orleans demographics may skew gray, but that doesn’t dampen the enthusiasm of would-be local marijuana entrepreneurs looking to set up shop in town. 

The town has two retail licenses available, and five businesses have stepped up with their $10,000 application fees. All met the qualifications for the next step, Town Administrator John Kelly recently told the Orleans Select Board.

A series of public outreach forums are set for this week. The meetings will be held via Zoom and will also be videotaped for later viewing on the town website.

The outlines of business plans are available on the Orleans website at town.orleans.ma.us, and abutters are being notified of the meetings by mail.

The five companies will then appear May 17-18 before the select board, whose members will rank each on various requirements, and choose the final two and an alternate by May 26, Kelly said. Negotiations would then start on community agreements.
