RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Reno City Council has voted to initiate the removal of the stay on land use applications for medical marijuana.
In a 4-1 vote on Wednesday, the Council approved an ordinance to amend the Reno Municipal Code to initiate the allowance of Medical Marijuana Establishments within the City of Reno under certain criteria. The Planning Commission recommended that hours of operation should be determined by the underlying zoning, with the option for the Council to further restrict hours of operation.
NRS spacing requirements establish a 1,000-foot separation from a public or private school, preschool through 12th grade, and a 300-foot separation from a community facility. A revision to the ordinance is that the spacing distance will be measured specifically from the front door of a MME to the school or community facility property line, rather than parcel line to parcel line.
