PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE ZONING   BY-LAW OF THE CITY OF SAINT JOHN

PUBLIC HEARING 

Public Notice is hereby given that the Common Council of The City of Saint John intends to consider amending The Zoning By-law of The City of Saint John (By-law Number C.P. 111) at its regular meeting to be held in the Council Chamber on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.

The amendment affects a number of sections of the Zoning By-law in order to add Cannabis Retail to the list of permitted uses in select commercial zones and introduce specific development standards for these facilities.  Also, a Cannabis Processing Facility will be added to the list of permitted uses in select commercial and industrial zones. The current definition of a Medical Marijuana Production Facility is proposed to be amended to a Cannabis Production Facility that would cover the production of cannabis for both medical and recreational consumption. The amendment also includes replacing existing definitions with new definitions to provide clarity with respect to the interpretation of these land uses.

The proposed amendment may be inspected by any interested person at the office of the Common Clerk, or in the office of Growth and Community Development Services, City Hall, 15 Market Square, Saint John, N.B. between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, inclusive, holidays excepted.
Written objections to the amendment may be sent to the undersigned at City Hall. 

If you require French services for a Common Council meeting, please contact the office of the Common Clerk.

The proposed Zoning By-law amendment may be read by section number only if no member of Council objects.

Members of the public may address the Committee at the meeting or submit comments in writing no later than Friday, April 15 by mail addressed to the Planning Advisory Committee, City of Saint John Growth and Community Development Services, P.O.
