On Monday the City Council received further recommendations from the Public Safety Committee regarding a cannabis manufacturing ordinance that’s been in the works. Council members directed staff to proceed with drafting.
The draft ordinance is expected to be brought before the council in the next month or two and. if everything goes according to plan, may become effective in late 2016 or early 2017.
The ordinance would regulate cannabis manufacturing businesses in the light and heavy industrial zoning districts with an approved use permit. At its June 29 meeting, the Public Safety Committee reviewed a spectrum of policy options and made several recommendations to the Council regarding the ordinance.
