An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Zoning) related to Medical Marijuana Facilities (Ordinance No. ORD-17-21) (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 7 Yeas and 0 Nays)
Memorandum
Approval of this ordinance will bring zoning for medical marijuana facilities into alignment with State of Michigan legislation on medical marijuana passed in 2016. Amended sections include ?5:10.14 (RE research district), ?5:10.14A (ORL office/research/limited industrial district) ?5:10.15 (C1 local business district), ?5:10.16 (C1A campus business district), ?5:10.17 (C1B community convenience center), ?5:10.18 (C1A/R local business district), ?5:10.19 (D1 and D2 downtown districts), ?5:10.21 (C2B business service district), ?5:10.23 (C3 fringe commercial district), ?5:10.24 through 26 (M industrial districts), ?5:10.27 (PUD planned unit development district), and ?5:50.1 Regulations Concerning Medical Use of Marijuana.

The City Planning Commission made the following modifications to the draft ordinance at their October 17, 2017 meeting:
* Grower and Processor were added as special exception uses in the ORL (Office/Research/Limited Industrial) district.
* Facilities allowed in M districts were changed from special exception uses to permitted uses.
* The 1000 foot spacing requirement was removed for all medical marijuana facility types except provisioning centers.
* In the RE and ORL district, a maximum of two allowed facility types may co-locate on one parcel. In the M district, up to five facility types may co-locate on one parcel.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of October 17, 2017, recommended approval of this request.
