At Jacksonville Beach, the St. Johns River Water Management District is reviewing a permit for a new parking lot and stormwater pond at 308 S. Third St., the former 33 Star retail location.

Plans show a 6,073-square-foot MedMen location.

Los Angeles-based MedMen Enterprises Inc. lists 33 operational MedMen and PharmaCann locations and 82 permitted under licenses.
