SELECT BOARD

Select Board:

Finance Committee:

Planning Board

Summary:  The Select Board placed non-binding questions on the 2018 Spring Town Election Ballot asking the Town to advise them as to what kinds of Recreational Marijuana Uses should be allowed in Groton.  Based on the results, it appears that the Town would be in favor of cultivation, testing and research only.  The purpose of this Article is to amend the Zoning Bylaw adopted at the 2018 Spring Town Meeting by banning all other uses of Recreation Marijuana in the Town of Groton.  Should Town Meeting pass this proposed bylaw by the required 2/3’s Majority, the Select Board will call for a Special Election on November 6, 2018 to confirm this vote as required by State Law.

George Barringer, Chair

Groton Planning Board
