Prosser Planning Commission Recommends Zoning Changes for Pot Businesses

The Prosser planning commission is recommending changing zoning ordinances to allow marijuana businesses to only operate in certain areas within city limits.

Commissioners did not discuss an outright ban, but also recommended specifically that growers be restricted to having their operations be inside an enclosed building.

The Prosser city council is expected to meet on the recommendation September 23rd.

Last week the city council voted to enact a 6 month moratorium on recreational marijuana.

The current moratorium does not affect "Altitude" -- the recreational marijuana shop that has already opened in town, but it does mean no other pot shops can open within city limits.
