Storyboards around the room will provide additional information.

In February, city officials said they would draft a new zone for private retail sales of non-medical cannabis, and then placed a blanket ban on retail sales until federal guidelines and provincial licensing of the cannabis retail landscape are in place.

Open House on Zoning Regulations for Cannabis Retail Stores, Thursday, June 28, and doors open at 6:30 p.m. at Evergreen Hall, 9291 Corbould St.

Chilliwack residents who show up will be asked to fill out a survey about cannabis retail zoning, licensing and public consumption.
