The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports the borough’s Marijuana Task Force met this week to discuss pot cultivation and approved a pathway for growers to begin operations on residential lots.
Growers would be able to conduct business with a conditional use permit on residential lots more than 20,000 square feet. Business owners could also have a limited marijuana cultivation license for a growing area of 500 square feet or less on a residential lot.
Neighbors would be allowed to weigh in through a public hearing and comment process before businesses receive the conditional use permit.
The borough assembly will review the task force’s proposal.
