A Public Hearing will be held virtually on Thursday, April 14th, 2022 at 6:30pm in Town Council Chambers, 400 Main Street. Topic of discussion: Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law amendments to permit indoor agriculture.
MUNICIPAL PLANNING STRATEGY AND LAND USE BYLAW AMENDMENTS TO PERMIT INDOOR AGRICULTURE
What is this hearing about?
An applicant has requested general amendments to the Town's Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw to add
'cultivation and processing within wholly enclosed buildings, excluding the cultivation of marijuana' as a permitted use in the C-1, C-2M and C-3 Zones to enable the small-scale indoor cultivation of vegetables, excluding the cultivation of marijuana. The amendment would allow indoor agriculture businesses to cultivate produce in the town.
How will this affect me?
As general amendments, the new use would be added as an additional permitted use within certain zones affected rather than a specific property. The amendments would allow indoor vegetable cultivation (within wholly enclosed buildings) as a permitted use on any lot within the Downtown Commercial (C-1), General Commercial Main Street (C-2M) or Secondary Commercial (C-3) Zones.
How do I get more information?
