New medical marijuana zoning moves forward in Sechelt

Sechelt Council is set for another look at zoning regulations for medical marijuana producers.

The Planning Committee is recommending a bylaw restricting medical marijuana facilities to Agricultural Land Reserve properties larger than 2 hectares.

The idea is to use it as the starting point, and look at other areas as part of a wider public consultation.

Councillor Noel Muller says he’d prefer going into those consultations with a blank slate.

Councillor Alice Lutes, though, argues they need to show the community what they’re comfortable with.  She’d like to see a 5 hectare limit.
