The Edmonds City Council Tuesday night will again take up possible approaches for regulating the commercial sale of marijuana. A map of buffer zones required through Initiative 502, which legalized recreational pot use statewide, is above.
The council in August approved a six-month moratorium on acceptance of permit or business license applications for marijuana-related businesses. The idea was to allow time for the State Liquor Control Board to complete its rule-making, and for the city to explore whether or how to permit legalized pot in the city.
Since that time, the issue has been discussed in two council committees: public safety, and parks, planning and public works.
Also before the council Tuesday:
– An update on a possible site for a Veteran’s Park in Edmonds.
– Continued discussion and possible action on proposed amendments to the proposed 2014 city budget
– You can see the complete agenda here. The public meeting starts at 7 p.m., but will be sandwiched between two executive sessions — one at 6 p.m. and the other at the end of regular business — on pending and potential litigation. The Council Chambers are in the Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N..
