Whether Westport should have a medical marijuana dispensary, and if so, where, was the subject of a Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) subcommittee meeting tonight that seemed to raise more questions than answers.
It was the subcommittee’s first meeting on the matter since the P&Z approved a one-year moratorium last year on accepting applications or approving permits for medical marijuana dispensaries in Westport.
Among the issues raised: should zoning require such dispensaries be far from schools, houses of worship, playgrounds, parks and residential areas?
Planning and Zoning Director Laurence Bradley said he wanted committee input on setbacks and zones where a marijuana dispensary might be allowed, so he could map it for further examination.
