[ARCHIVED] Cannabis Dispensaries Amendment


On January 4, 2021 the Plan & Zoning Commission voted 7-2 to recommend approval of Village Code text amendments that would allow adult proposed text amendments to the Village Code that would allow adult-use and medical use cannabis distribution organizations (dispensaries) in the B-1 Community Commercial District (along Waukegan Road) and in the O/R Office/Research District (along Central Avenue and Frontage Road).  The proposed amendments would only allow adult-use cannabis dispensaries under a special use permit which would require zoning hearings and Village Board approval for individual businesses.  The proposed text amendments also establish a number of regulations on security, advertising and minimum distances to sensitive uses such as schools, parks, daycares and houses of worship.  


The Village Code amendments will now be discussed at the January 19, 2021 Village Board meeting (held via Zoom webinar) which starts at 7 p.m.  See Zoom link and dial-in information below.
