Cannabis retail store rezoning hearing Jan. 30
The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) is holding a public hearing regarding a cannabis retail store proposed for Athalmer Highway on Jan. 30 at the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commence.
The 7 p.m. public hearing will consider Bylaw No. 2897, which if approved will rezone the property at 4884 Athalmer Road to permit a cannabis retail store and gather the views of residents on the proposed cannabis retail licence.
There are currently no zones in the RDEK that permit cannabis retail sales, a planning department report noted.
“If the proposed amending bylaw is approved, it will permit a cannabis retail store on the subject property only,” the RDEK outlined.
The Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch is currently reviewing the application.
The Advisory Planning Committee for Electoral Areas F and G supports the application from Larry, Elmer and Jerry Meadows.
The RDEK board of directors Jan. 11 passed the first two readings of Bylaw No. 2897.
