Danbury Planning Director makes recommendations on cannabis sales

The Danbury Planning and Zoning Commissions have received documents from City planners about retail marijuana operations in the City.  The Zoning Commission is slated to open discussions on cannabis at a meeting July 12th.  In a recommendation, City Planning Director Sharon Calitro wrote that the retail sales component of the state law could lead to the City collecting an additional 6 percent sales tax.  A proposed amendment would allow for a limited number of specific cannabis uses in Danbury.  Zoners will be looking into allowing 4 types of businesses, with restrictions.  Marijuana sales would not be allowed on Main Street, but could be in certain commercial and industrial zones from no more than two hybrid retailers that sell both medicinal marijuana and recreational marijuana.  No more than one micro-cultivator, a small scale indoor plant producer whose “grow space” is between 2,000- and 10,000-square-feet, would be allowed.  Cannabis food and beverage manufacturing would be banned in Danbury.  The City has a temporary moratorium on marijuana business applications.
