City staff researched other, nearby communities to learn where they restrict or allow medical marihuana facilities. Through zoning regulations, which control land use, the city may allow these facilities in some areas, while prohibiting them in others.
Based on staff research, allowable locations may be industrial areas, like the area of the W.K. Kellogg Airport, Fort Custer Industrial Park, and limited commercial corridors. At this time, these locations are conceptual, as seen on these Medical Marihuana Maps.
Such facilities may be prohibited near residential neighborhoods, churches, schools, parks, and day cares. These prohibited areas are similar to other communities.
