On Nov. 7, 2016, the Wilsonville City Council held a second reading and approved an ordinance that creates time, place and manner regulations on the operation of marijuana-related businesses that may locate within the City should voters reject Ballot Measure 3-486, thereby voicing a desire to have the City remove a current ban on marijuana-related businesses. The City Council seeks to be prepared with rules that govern where, when and how marijuana-related businesses can locate within Wilsonville in the event the ban is discontinued by voters at the Nov. 8 general election. If voters opt to continue the ban, this ordinance will be moot and will not apply in that the facilities will continue to be prohibited. The ordinance establishes local regulations for the operation of marijuana-related businesses that include a 2,000-foot buffer from residential zones, schools, City parks, or any City-owned property and also a 1,000-foot buffer between marijuana-related businesses.
The City Council held a second reading and approved a Zone Map amendment from Public Facility to the Village Zone for of a 1.29-acre site located in the Villebois Village Center at the northeast corner of Costa Circle West and Barber Street to allow the development of 16 detached row houses along with associated streets. The proposal was previously approved by Development Review Board (DRB) Panel B on Sept. 26 with a DRB recommendation to support the Zone Map amendment.
