Voters this May overturned the ban on recreational marijuana businesses in Grant County, making both medical and recreational marijuana businesses legal from farming to processing to retail sales.

In a step toward making the county's ordinances and regulations conform with the state's when it comes to marijuana businesses, the Grant County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on a proposed amendment to the county's land development code to add time, place and manner regulations related to marijuana businesses.

The hearing will be held Thursday, July 19, at the John Day Fire Hall beginning at 5:30 p.m. Written comments must be submitted to the Grant County Planning Department by noon on July 19. Copies of the proposed amendment can be obtained at the planning department offices in the county courthouse.

According to the proposed amendment, the draft standards do not apply to homegrown or homemade marijuana as allowed by state law, to individuals who are registered medical marijuana cardholders or to designated caregivers at their primary residence who are providing services to a single registered medical marijuana cardholder. The regulations also do not apply to recreational use or possession of marijuana as allowed under state law.

Primary owners or operators of marijuana businesses will be required to obtain an annual permit issued by the planning department. Marijuana businesses will be required to have a license or certificate from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission or the Oregon Health Authority and hold a land-use permit from the county.

Under the amendment, marijuana businesses of all types will be prohibited from all residentially zoned districts and the county's rural service center district.

Marijuana growing will be allowed outright as a farm use in primary forest and agriculturally zoned districts and be allowed under a Type II review in the county's general industrial or general commercial districts. Marijuana production is prohibited as a home occupation in any zoning district.

Marijuana processing businesses will be allowed as a conditional use in agriculturally zoned, industrial and commercial districts.

Wholesale distribution will be allowed outright as a farm use in primary forest and agriculturally zoned districts and be allowed as a conditional use in the industrial district. Retail sales will be allowed only in the commercial and industrial districts under a Type II review.

The proposed amendment also allows for laboratory operations and research related to marijuana in certain zoning districts.

According to the proposed amendment, all outdoor marijuana growing operations and any structure used for indoor growing must be located at least 100 feet from an exterior property line and 300 feet from any off-site dwelling.

Any building used for marijuana growing must be equipped with ventilation and air filtration systems. Light fixtures used for growing must be shielded from view from surrounding properties from sunset to sunrise. Sustained sound from equipment used for heating, ventilation, odor control and similar functions must not exceed 30 decibels measured at the property line.
