Medical Marijuana Zoning Ordinance Amendment

City staff continues to research measures that might be taken at the local level to regulate Medical Marijuana businesses that might begin operating in North Kansas City once authorized by the State. In a effort to provide guidance to those potential businesses, North Kansas City is considering amendments to the NKC Zoning Ordinance regarding Medical Marijuana. 

Next Steps

As instructed by the City Council at the February 5, 2019, Work Session, staff began codifying the Medical Marijuana Zoning Ordinance for formal Council consideration. Prior to City Council consideration, these zoning ordinance amendments will require a public hearing (with appropriate public notice) and consideration before the Planning Commission, which will be accommodated at the March 7, 2019 Commission meeting.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is currently developing state regulations for the licensing of Medical Marijuana.  These are not expected for some months.  It is conceivable that once the State has disseminated regulations some parts of the Medical Marijuana Zoning Ordinance might need to be changed to conform with state requirements.  The City believes, however, that in order to provide guidance to Medical Marijuana businesses that might be investigating locating in North Kansas City, it is good idea to enact these local regulations sooner rather than later.
