BEND, OR -- After hearing impassioned public testimony on both sides of the issue, the Deschutes County Planning Commission held its first deliberation session regarding regulations for marijuana-related businesses in unincorporated areas. 

 

They addressed a wide variety of issues and concerns, according to county planner Matt Martin. “The deliberation was rather free-form so they bounced from topic to topic. But setbacks, minimum lot sizes, odor, light pollution, among other things were all discussed and are cornerstones in the proposed regulation."
 
Martin tells KBND News the Planning Commission could recommend that County Commissioners not allow the businesses at all. “So it could include opt out of one or all marijuana-related businesses or allow them subject to standards; so that is still an option. That option is available to the board of County Commissioners to make that decision up until December 27th of this year.”
 
The Planning Commission is scheduled to hold one more deliberation session Monday, November 23. They will then make a final recommendation to County Commissioners.
