Recreational, Adult-Use Cannabis
At the recommendation of the Marijuana Study Group, City Council directed the Planning Commission to draft ordinance language and evaluation criteria for adult-use, recreational cannabis. Upon completion of these documents, City Council will make a determination whether these types of businesses may be permitted in the city.
On July 20th, Planning Commission held a public hearing on the draft cannabis zoning ordinance language. Following extensive public comment during the meeting, as well as written comments submitted in advance, the Planning Commission voted to recommend City Council adopt the draft cannabis zoning text amendments as written. City Council took action at their regular meeting on Monday, July 26th and the ordinances went into effect in August, Since that time, city administration has been working to finalize the cannabis application and scoring criteria. City Council will be considering a final draft of these documents on Monday, October 18th. The agenda and packet materials may be found here.
Public Comments & Feedback
Knowing this is an important decision for our community, the city held a Cannabis Open House on May 26th. This in-person event was meant to provide residents with an opportunity to learn about the proposed ordinance, ask questions, and provide their feedback.
