Mayor and Council holding two public hearings on Infill Incentive District and marijuana dispensaries Dec. 20

Mayor and Council will hold two public hearings on December 20, 2022, related to proposed amendments to the Unified Development Code (UDC) related to marijuana dispensaries and the Infill Incentive District (IID). The meeting agenda and materials, as well as instructions on how to submit comments or request to speak at the hearing, they may be located on the Mayor and Council page.

Planning Commission held public hearings on each of these items in November.

The first public hearing was to review the proposed Medical and Adult-use Marijuana Special Exception UDC Amendment.  The Planning Commission voted 7-2 to recommend approval of the proposal to Mayor and Council without support for the addition of a Mayor and Council Special Exception land use procedure to marijuana dispensaries in C-2 and C-3 zones.     

Planning Commission also reviewed the proposed Infill Incentive District (IID) Update UDC Amendment. They voted 9-0 to recommend approval of the proposed code change, with additional recommendations to express support for a future park on the former Nearmont Landfill site and to consider additional steps to reduce auto-centric environments. 

Background on the IID, including FAQs and other materials regarding the proposed update can be found on the project webpage.
