The commission suggested changes to the proposed ordinance include limiting the indoor growing operation to 50 square feet, forbidding cultivation in bedrooms, and requiring ventilation and filtration systems for grow rooms.
Cultivation also cannot occur within 1,000 feet of a school, day care center, or public park. That distance and those facilities are similar to the city’s sex offender ordinance. Also, a qualified patient or the primary caregiver must live on site.
