Press release from Rio Dell:
The Rio Dell City Council will commence deliberations on the proposed Commercial Medical Marijuana Land Use Ordinance (CMMLUO) at a special meeting on Tuesday, May 10th beginning at 6:30pm. The Council is expected to begin deliberations by discussing CMMLUO’s cultivation provisions, which also includes outdoor, indoor and other special techniques.
A full schedule of public hearings on the proposed ordinance has been scheduled through June 7th and is posted on the City’s website.
The CMMLUO was forwarded to the City Council by the Planning Commission who recommended the comprehensive medical ordinance which was a result of a series of extensive public meetings held earlier this year.
“The hard work of the Planning Commission, led by Chair Nick Angeloff, has produced a cogent and thoughtful proposal for the Council’s consideration,” stated Kyle Knopp, City Manager of Rio Dell. “We want to encourage the public to attend this series of meetings to voice their opinion and further refine this document for the betterment of the community.”
The Hearing Schedule and the Draft Ordinance are available for public review at City Hall, 675 Wildwood Avenue between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday or online at www.riodellcity.com.
