Fosdick Said The City Staff Will Probably Resurrect And Update Retail Marijuana Research Originally Presented To The Council Last Summer And Will Continue To Look At Other Cities’ Best Practices In Regulating Such Businesses.

Todd Stevens, of Native Roots in unincorporated Boulder County, helps customers with marijuana sales in 2016. The staff published its recommendations for that home-grow ordinance last week. Council members voted unanimously on Tuesday night to give preliminary approval to the measure that would generally establish a six-plant-per-person limit on cultivating, producing and processing marijuana inside a residential dwelling unit. City Manager Harold Dominguez said on Tuesday night that it will probably be as much as “a month or so” before the staff can complete work on its report about the issues and options related to allowing locally licensed marijuana dispensaries inside Longmont. Coombs amended the proposed pot-shop total to four but ultimately withdrew his motion to direct the staff to prepare a proposed ordinance, since that work will soon be underway. Senior Planner Erin Fosdick said on Wednesday that the staff task force that worked on the home-grow measure has not yet started discussing the issue of limited retail sales. Fosdick said the city staff will probably resurrect and update retail marijuana research originally presented to the council last summer and will continue to look at other cities’ “best practices” in regulating such businesses. She said the staff will probably initially make a report to the council rather than presenting a draft ordinance to see if the council has suggestions for what it would like the staff to study as city policies and regulations. Longmont banned medical marijuana dispensaries in 2011 and recreational marijuana shops in 2013. While there are no legally operating retail marijuana sales businesses operating inside Longmont now, there are two such shops located on the edges of the city limits in unincorporated Boulder County Native Roots, near the Sunset Street Bridge, and Green Tree Medicinals, which is north of Colo.
