The Halifax Board of Selectmen is requesting public comment on the application by Bud's Goods and Provisions before the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission for a provisional license for cultivation and processing of marijuana on River Street. The Cannabis Control Commission has asked that the Board determine whether Bud's Goods proposal is in compliance with the Town's municipal by-laws. The Board will include this on the agenda for the Board's meeting on July 14, 2020 at 8:00pm. As it is likely that more than ten people will want to attend the meeting, the meeting will likely be held on-line (details to be posted with the agenda for meeting not later than Friday, July 10). In addition to participating on-line, residents can send any comments to the Board to Halifax Board of Selectmen, 499 Plymouth Street, Halifax, MA 02338 or e-mailing the Town Administrator at 781-294-1316.
Public comments should be limited to the issue of zoning. If Bud's Goods and Provisions is able to obtain a provisional license from the Cannabis Control Commission, it will still need to obtain a site plan approval from the Planning Board and a special permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals in order to construct and operate its facility on River Street. Any meetings concerning the site plan and the special permit will be posted.
Anyone with any questions can contact the Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316.
