Thurston County Commissioners will hold a public hearing at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to take comment on proposed changes and another extension for the county’s interim regulations for marijuana producers, processors and retailers.
The current regulations expire May 8, county officials say.
If approved, the ordinance would:
▪ Cap the number of medical marijuana cooperatives permitted in the county at 10.
▪ Allow utilities, such as wells and septic systems, to encroach into the 100-foot residential zone setback for marijuana establishments.
Comments are due 4 p.m. Tuesday and can be mailed to the courthouse, attention Jeremy Davis, a senior planner at Resource Stewardship, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The county has been operating under an interim set of zoning regulations for marijuana operations since November 2013.
For information on the regulations, call 360-754-3355, Ext. 7010 or see co.thurston.wa.us. The hearing will be at the county courthouse, Building One, Room 280, 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia.
