ARTICLE 14:  To see if the Town will vote to amend the Athol Zoning Bylaws by adding a new Section 3.29, TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON LICENSED MARIJUANA ESTABLISHMENTS, that would provide as follows, and further to amend the Table of Contents to add Section 3.29 “Temporary Moratorium on Licensed Marijuana Establishments:”

Section 3.29 Temporary Moratorium on Licensed Marijuana Establishments

On November 8, 2016, the voters of the Commonwealth approved a law regulating the cultivation, processing, distribution, possession and use of marijuana for recreational purposes (new G.L. c. 94G, Regulation of the Use and Distribution of Marijuana Not Medically Prescribed). The law, which allows certain personal use and possession of marijuana, took effect on December 15, 2016 and (as amended on December 30, 2016 by Chapter 351 of the Acts of 2016 and thereafter, on July 28, 2017 by Chapter 55 of the Acts of 2017) requires a Cannabis Control Commission to issue regulations regarding the licensing of commercial activities by March 15, 2018 and to begin accepting applications for licenses no later than April 1, 2018. Currently under the Zoning Bylaw, a non-medical Marijuana Establishment (hereinafter, a “Licensed Marijuana Establishment”), as defined in G.L. c. 94G, §1, is not specifically addressed in the Athol Zoning Bylaw.

 

The regulation of recreational marijuana raises novel legal, planning, and public safety issues, and the Town needs time to study and consider the regulation of Licensed Marijuana Establishments and address such issues, as well as to address the potential impact of the State regulations on local zoning and to undertake a planning process to consider amending the Athol Zoning Bylaw regarding regulation of Licensed Marijuana Establishments. This temporary moratorium on the use of land and structures in the Town for Licensed Marijuana Establishments will allow sufficient time to address the effects of such structures and uses in the Town and to enact bylaws in a consistent manner.

A.Definition

“Licensed Marijuana Establishment” shall mean a “marijuana cultivator, independent testing laboratory, marijuana product manufacturer, marijuana retailer or any other type of licensed marijuana-related business.”

B.Temporary Moratorium

For the reasons set forth above and notwithstanding any other provision of the Zoning Bylaw to the contrary, the Town hereby adopts a temporary moratorium on the use of land or structures for a Licensed Marijuana Establishment and other uses related to recreational marijuana. The moratorium shall be in effect through December 31, 2018 or until a bylaw is earlier approved. During the moratorium period, the Planning Board, on behalf of the Town of Athol, shall undertake a planning process to address the potential impacts of recreational marijuana in the Town, and to consider the Cannabis Control Commission regulations regarding Licensed Marijuana Establishments, and shall consider adopting new Zoning Bylaws in response to these new issues.

 

or take any action in relation thereto.

 

ARTICLE 15:  To see if the town will vote to amend Chapter VII of the General By-Laws of the Town of Athol by adding a new Section 12, LICENSED MARIJUANA ESTABLISHMENTS, that would provide as follows, and further to amend the Table of Contents to add Chapter VII, Section 12, “Licensed Marijuana Establishments”:

Chapter VII, Section 12 - Licensed marijuana establishments

 

Consistent with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 94G, Section 3(a)(2), the number of licensed marijuana establishments, including all types of non-medical “marijuana establishments” as defined in Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 94G, Section 1, including marijuana cultivators, marijuana testing facilities, marijuana product manufacturers, marijuana retailers or any other type of marijuana-related businesses, within the Town of Athol, not exceed 20% of the number of licenses issued within the Town for the retail sale of alcoholic beverages, not to be drunk on the premises where sold under Section 15 of M.G.L. Chapter 138, nor shall the number of any type of marijuana establishments be limited to a number fewer than the number of medical marijuana treatment centers registered to engage in the same type of activity in the Town.

 

The Finance Committee will hold a meeting on the foregoing articles beginning on February

13, 2018 in the Memorial Building at 6:30 p.m. And you are hereby directed to serve the

warrant by posting attested copies hereof in Quabbin Valley Healthcare, of the Town of
