Major Marijuana Activity

DPD has developed a proposed update to rules addressing “major marijuana activity,” which includes production, processing, and sales of marijuana. Our proposal includes updates to correspond with State licensing requirements, types of zones where such activities may occur, and buffer distances from facilities such as parks, schools, and transit centers. Our proposal materials are on our Marijuana Zoning Restrictions webpage. More information is also available on the Mayor’s Medical Marijuana Ordinance web page.

Next Steps
DPD published an environmental determination of non-significance on September 17, 2015. The determination notice announced a two-week comment period, and a three-week appeal period.

We will forward our proposal to the Mayor and City Council later this year for a possible decision in early 2016.
