Commissioners to Consider Ordinance Regulating Marijuana Cultivation

An ordinance that would regulate the cultivation of marijuana for personal use and by medical marijuana caregivers in unincorporated areas of Fremont County will come up for consideration by the Fremont County Board of Commissioners at their regular meeting next Tuesday, March 8th.    The ordinance will address restrictions on both indoor and outdoor cultivation of marijuana.   The ordinance places specific limits on the number of marijuana plants that can be cultivated.   It also restricts access by requiring fencing on all outdoor marijuana grows and addresses lighting, odors, and limits on visual observation of marijuana plants.

The ordinance will be considered on first reading and the Board of Commissioners will take public comment on the proposed regulations.    Citizens can also submit public comment in writing.   The proposed ordinance can be accessed and reviewed by the public by going to the Fremont County website at www.fremontco.com and clicking on the link under the public notice on the home web page.

The Board of Commissioners meets at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 8th, in Room LL-3 of the Fremont County Administration Building.
