As the legalization of pot approaches, the municipality is asking residents and stakeholders to share their opinions.
A series of public engagement sessions start April 14 at the Anzac Recreation Centre and run at various locations across the region until May 15.
The drop-in sessions will allow residents to engage with municipal representatives and learn more about how cannabis legalization will impact our community
Jamie Doyle, Director of Planning and Development said any recommendation developed will be aligned with federal and provincial legislation.
“The Federal Government has signaled it will legalize recreational cannabis this summer and we want to ensure any proposed Bylaw changes for Council’s consideration are guided by the communities, residents and stakeholders we serve,”
The federal and provincial governments have already established several rules and regulations including minimum age requirements, possession limits and separation distances from schools and health care facilties.
The Municipality is focused on proposed changes to the Land Use Bylaw, Business Licence Bylaw and Smoking Bylaw and in establishing rules for public consumption, among other new guidelines.
An online survey, will be open until May 15.
