Council to consider Zoning Bylaw Amendments pertaining to Cannabis Retail Use
On February 26, 2019, Council endorsed an approach to consider up to five Cannabis Retail Use locations in the City including a buffer requirement of 75 metres between sensitive uses and additional business license requirements.
On April 9, 2019, Council adopted a Corporate Policy which outlines the procedure under which Cannabis Retail Use applications would be considered and processed in the City. Council also gave first, second and third readings to the Business License and Regulation Bylaw, 2015, No. 3000, Amendment Bylaw No. 4, 2019, No. 3189 for additional business licence requirements.
The intent of Bylaw Amendment No. 16, 2019, No. 3188 is to amend City of Port Moody Zoning Bylaw 2018, No. 2937 to define Cannabis Retail Use and exclude this use from the existing definition of Retail. The proposed amendment would require a Retail Cannabis Use to be considered through a site-specific rezoning process. This process would be in coordination with:
• City of Port Moody Corporate Policy – 09-4300-2019-01-Cannabis Retail Use;
• City of Port Moody Business Licensing and Regulation Bylaw, 2015, No. 3000;
• City of Port Moody Development Approval and Procedures Bylaw, No. 2918;
• Provincial requirements.
