Proposed Text Amendment Information for Recreational Cannabis Dispensaries
The Batavia City Council placed an advisory referendum on the November 3rd general election ballot seeking to determine the level of support for such a use within the city of Batavia. The referendum question was posed as:
Shall the City of Batavia allow the sale of recreational adult-use cannabis within its jurisdiction, subject to statutorily permissible restrictions?
9,853 (63.05) of voters selected “Yes” to 5,774 (36.95) who selected “No”. 81.49% of registered voters in Batavia cast a vote on this ballot item.
On November 10th, the City Council's Committee of the Whole gave direction to City Staff to begin work on a Zoning Code Text Amendment, with the intention of scheduling it for a Public Hearing on December 16, 2020.
This page will be updated on the progress of the review process for these items.
