The Planning and Zoning Commission for the City of Mandan discussed the laws and zoning of medical marijuana.
Mandan could potentially see a dispensary within city limits.
So, the city needs to create a law that says where the medical marijuana facilities can go.
City officials say if they were to get a dispensary it will depend on zoning laws and they are keeping it simple.
John Van Dyke, Principal Planner for the City of Mandan, says, “City commission provided that it would be planner interpretation, they provided the guidance that would be directed to primarily be industrial districts and commercial districts. Effectively anywhere a drug store could be located.”
No one in Mandan applied for a manufacturing facility, but this law is still important for any future dispensaries.
Mandan City Planning and Zoning will be looking for public input on May 30th.
