News Announcement regarding La Mota Dispensary at 207 N. Bridgeton
Yesterday the BNA board received verbal notice from La Mota LLC that the company would not open a dispensary at the location formerly occupied by Channel’s Edge. Today we received email confirmation that ONI also heard this verbal notice. At this time, though, no steps have been taken by La Mota to officially withdraw the application..
Because of this development, BNA leaders have decided to cancel the emergency meeting scheduled for next Tuesday, March 6 at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club. The next BNA general meeting is scheduled for April 17, (details to be announced shortly). We will add a discussion item with adequate time to update neighbors of any further information we receive.

Just another follow up on this issue. As I’m sure you are aware, we are still restricting parking in the same areas along Bridgeton Rd. near an area of erosion on the levee. We had some geotechnical engineers evaluate the erosion last week and are working with the Corps to develop next steps.
Current river forecasts predict the River to rise above 16’ (minor flood stage) again later this week. We still believe that restricting parking in that area to reduce risk and increase access is the most prudent course of action at this time. We understand that this is an inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.
