City temporarily bans pot dispensaries


Council approved the action Tuesday night

The city has approved a temporary ban on medical marijuana facilities in the city, just long enough to determine the zoning and development standards those businesses must abide by.

On Feb. 18, the Sherwood City Council agreed to the limited time ban on the facilities.

“We are proposing 150 days,” said Julia Hajduk, the city’s community development director. “It’s a temporary ban.”

Sherwood’s ban came the same day that the Oregon Senate approved a bill that would block an out-and-out prohibition of medical marijuana dispensaries.

City officials have said they need the five months to “develop, process and enact amendments to the city’s development code involving medical marijuana dispensaries.”
