Community feedback about cannabis production and processing in Electoral Areas A, B, C, E, and G is now being sought from residents by the Fraser Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD).
Land-use regulations are being updated for cannabis.
The FVRD adopted a land use policy for cannabis production, processing and retail sales last October for electoral areas.
The implementation is in two phases. The first phase, completed in March 2020, restricted cannabis production in Electoral Areas D, F and H.
“In phase 2 we are asking for community feedback to help guide where, and what type of cannabis land uses will be permitted,” said Bill Dickey, chair of the electoral area services committee. “This is a great opportunity for residents to influence policies and ensure there are minimal impacts in your community.”
Example questions in the survey will include: Which zones are appropriate for cannabis land uses? What are the regulations for micro vs standard cultivation?
To offer feedback see fvrd.ca/cannabis. The online survey will be open until Feb. 28, according to an FVRD news release.
