[ARCHIVED] Town Bd to discuss marijuana at October 27th Board meeting at 7:30 PM

The Board has until December 31st to decide whether to opt out. A public meeting is required by state law.

TOWN BOARD TO HOLD PUBLIC DISCUSSION ON MARIJUANA AT OUR OCTOBER 27 TOWN BOARD MEETING

Earlier this year the NY State legislature approved legislation to legalize marijuana for anyone 21 years or older.  Municipalities can opt-out of allowing cannabis retail dispensaries and/or on-site consumption licenses (cannabis lounges) from within their borders before the December 31, 2021 deadline.  If a municipality does NOT opt-out by 12/31, it CAN NOT opt-out in the future, but if a municipality DOES OPT-OUT before 12/31, it CAN always opt back in at a later date by repealing the local law. Other options include regulating locations -only allowing locations in some sections of town (example: industrial areas, not near schools,  not in downtown business areas).

The Greenburgh Town Board will hold a public discussion at our Town Board meeting on Wednesday evening,  October 27, 2021 at 7:30 PM. The meeting will be held at Town Hall.  Your participation and input is welcome.  We will hear presentations and be provided with more info re: options available to the town. If you are unable to attend but want to express your thoughts please e mail townboard@greenburghny.com.  We will discuss the format of the meeting at our work session on Tuesday.
