City commission approves marijuana ordinances

Members of the Three Rivers City Commission approved a pair of ordinances to allow recreational marijuana facilities.

Two ordinances approved Tuesday will allow recreational marijuana establishments as special-exception uses. Meanwhile, the second detailed how and where they are able to locate within the city.

Municipal officials said it’s likely applications for permits by November. In addition, stipulations will require that such facilities operate in districts zoned business and/or industrial.

The ordinances were supported by Mayor Tom Lowry, and commissioners Clayton Lyczynski, Chris Abel and Carolyn McNary.

Commissioners Pat Dane and Alison Haigh voted in opposition.

Lowry said roughly three dozen properties in the city could fit the zoning for recreational-marijuana facilities.
