City Moving Forward with Changes to Marijuana Regulations

The Shelton City Commission is moving forward with proposed changes to the City’s regulations governing recreation marijuana facilities and collective gardens. Steve Goins, Director of the City’s Department of Community and Economic Development, summarized the proposed changes originally presented to the Commission last week:

After a public hearing on the proposal last Tuesday night, Commissioner Kathy McDowell and Mayor Gary Cronce said they need a little more time before making their decision. Monday, all three Commissioners voiced their support of the changes. 

The Commission then held the first reading of the ordinance that will lead the way for a recreational marijuana producer and processor to locate in the former Rayonier buildings. Second reading and adoption is expected at the Commissioners’ next meeting, 6 PM Monday February 1st.
