Online Survey for Resident Input: Recreational Marijuana Facilities in Carlisle
The Planning Board is seeking Carlisle residents’ input on how the Town should regulate and zone any potential recreational marijuana facilities in the Town of Carlisle.
In April of this year, the Planning Board and the Town voted to extend a moratorium on recreational marijuana facilities. The temporary moratorium will be ending on June 30, 2019 and Carlisle will be faced with a decision at Town Meeting in 2019, and possibly at the following Town Election, for one of three options:
1.) Establish a permanent town-wide ban on all recreational marijuana facilities.
2.) Establish a zoning by-law that would regulate and adopt Massachusetts state statutes that would allow for a minimum of one of each of the State’s eight defined facility types.
3.) Establish a by-law that limits and regulates the establishment of recreational marijuana facilities to something less than what is stipulated in the State statutes.
The Planning Board has set up a short, anonymous, online survey to gauge the community’s collective thoughts on what the Board should recommend being placed on the Warrant for the 2019 Town Meeting.
