Cochrane now has a process for regulating cannabis retailers within Town boundaries.

Council approved the process at their meeting last night.

In May, the Town added a definition and specific guidelines for cannabis retail stores to the Land Use Bylaw. Council approval now regulates the process for those who wish to open one.

Applicants who wish to sell cannabis in a retail establishment in Cochrane must meet the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw and the Town’s specific requirements for cannabis retail stores.

Specific requirements for cannabis retail stores include minimum distances from playgrounds, child care services, day homes, emergency medical facilities and school sites, as well as other cannabis retailers and provisions for lighting and exterior access.

The Town begins accepting development permit applications for cannabis retail stores in person only on a first-come, first-served basis at 8:30am Monday October 1, 2018. Applications will be reviewed for completeness in the order they are received. Complete applications will be processed in the order they were deemed complete starting October 17, 2018.

Details and forms.
