Consideration of Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment allowing Medical Cannabis in the N-C Zoning District
Business Meeting: 07/06/2021
Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment Application PLRZ2021-187, initiated by the City of Danville Planning Director requests to amend Chapter 41 entitled Zoning Ordinance of the Code of the City of Danville, Virginia, 1986 as amended. Specifically, to amend Article 15. Section B. Definitions, to include a definition for Cannabis Dispensing Facility and to amend Article 3.J, N-C Neighborhood Retail Commercial District to add Cannabis Dispensing Facilities as a permitted use under new subsection B.16.
Virginia allows medical cannabis dispensing facilities under a regional licensing system. Staff prepared the zoning amendment in anticipation of a medical cannabis dispensing facility request, although no formal application is made. Dispensaries must be 1,000 feet from schools and child care centers.
The Planning Commission, at their June 7, 2021 meeting, voted 6-0 to recommend approval of the text amendment establishing a definition for cannabis dispensing facilities and to allow them as a permitted use in the N-C zoning district.
