West Greenwich Town Council will have hearing and may vote on proposed zoning ordinance that would subject non-residential co-ops to a public hearing and restrict them to certain zones within the town. Names of the members of the co-op would not necessarily be public if they choose to be represented at hearing but the location would be public. The ordinance would also require all structures “in which medical marijuana is used, cultivated, processed, and/or stored, must provide a proper ventilation system with air filters which will eliminate the odor of marijuana and prevent the migration of smoke into neighboring properties”.
The ordinance would also prohibit vape lounges and restrict any future compassion centers to certain zones within the town.
Hearing will be held at 7pm Wednesday January 6 in Council chambers.
