Village of Lake Bluff Takes Action Against Medical Marijuana

The Village of Lake Bluff Board of Trustees approved a resolution at its Dec. 10 meeting that directs the Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals (PCZBA) to consider amending the Village Zoning Code to include Distribution Facilities as a special use should the ‘Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act” be signed into law by the Governor. Specifically, the resolution stated: “Should the Proposed Law, or any similar law, be approved by the Illinois General Assembly and signed into law by the Governor, the PCZBA is hereby directed to hold a public hearing on the question of whether the Zoning Code should be amended to include Distribution Facilities as a Special Use and make a recommendation to the Village Board regarding the same along with any other conditions that should be attached to the zoning of Distribution Facilities. The notice of such hearing shall be given as required by law within 120 days after the effective date of the Proposed Law or any similar law. The public shall be deemed to have notice that the Village is considering a Zoning Code amendment regarding Distribution Facilities as of the effective date of this Resolution.”
