KODIAK, Alaska — A group that advises the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly on marijuana regulations has decided to allow commercial pot growing in some residential areas.
The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports the borough’s Marijuana Task Force met this week to discuss pot cultivation and approved a pathway for growers to begin operations on residential lots.
Growers would be able to conduct business with a conditional use permit on residential lots more than 20,000 square feet. Business owners could also have a limited marijuana cultivation license for a growing area of 500 square feet or less on a residential lot.
Neighbors would be allowed to weigh in through a public hearing and comment process before businesses receive the conditional use permit.
The borough assembly will review the task force’s proposal.
