PORTLAND DELAYS ACTION ON ZONING RULES FOR MARIJUANA-RELATED BUSINESSES




February 4, 2019


Press Herald 

The Portland City Council on Monday postponed a vote to establish zoning rules for marijuana-related businesses.

The postponement came at the request of City Councilor Belinda Ray, who planned to offer two amendments but missed the meeting because of an illness. The council rescheduled the vote for Feb. 20.

Before the postponement, councilors heard from four people about the proposed rules, including two attorneys.

Hannah King and Malina Dumas, of the law firm Drummond Woodsum, said the amendments would streamline the land use approval process and change setbacks from residential areas.

One amendment, co-sponsored by Ray and City Councilor Kimberly Cook, would change the setback from 200 feet from property line to property line to 300 feet from a residential property line to a marijuana cultivation, manufacturing and testing facility.
