A state Land Court Judge will decide whether to dismiss the LakeHouse Inn appeal to overturn a special permit for a retail recreational marijuana store next door along Route 20 at the Lee/Lenox town line. Lee officials and the developer claim that the plaintiff, technically, was late in filing the appeal.

The Lakehouse Inn in Lee wants the state Land Court in Boston to overturn the Lee Select Board's May 4 decision to grant a special permit to Forest Wilde LLC to convert the Cork 'N Hearth restaurant next door into a retail recreational store and manufacturing facility. The court has scheduled a Zoom hearing on the appeal for 2:30 p.m. on July 29, Judge T. Smith presiding.

Forest Wilde now finds itself caught between the legal action and the possible need to seek permission from the Lenox Zoning Board of Appeals to manufacture and sell cannabis products. Lenox municipal officials want a say in whether to allow the pot shop to open because part of the restaurant lies within their town.
