We have been informed by the Town Clerk’s office that the City Council will meet tonight and is expected to set a date for the public hearing.
There will be a public hearing on the proposed ordinance that would require any patient who is growing more than 12 mature plants in their residence to get approval from the Town. Even with approval, no individual would be allowed to have more than 24 mature plants, even if that individual is a patient and a caregiver for 2-5 patients. Patients and caregivers would be restricted to growing in their own residences unless they are part of a registered co-op. Co-ops, residential and non-residential, would need a special use permit, which requires a public hearing before the zoning board and the address of the co-op would be public. The hearing is on Wednesday before the Bristol Town Council at 7pm.
