Explanation

BACKGROUND:
In response to the creation of the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program, this code change specifies which zoning districts the uses licensed under the state program would be permitted in based upon already codified similar land uses.

This code change also creates the requirement and review standards for obtaining a Special Permit from the Columbus Board of Zoning Adjustment for the establishment of an Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program Retail Dispensary.

These code changes will not alter, change, lessen, or abrogate any of the state level standards or requirements for any licensed facility under the control of the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program.

The Columbus Development Commission reviewed and recommended approval of this proposed code change at its monthly public meeting held on October 11, 2018.
