Tuesday, the Ross Township Board of Trustees repealed an ordinance that legalizes medical marijuana facilities and sets a process for obtaining permission to open them. A second ordinance dealing with the zoning districts marijuana businesses can open was not repealed.
Supervisor Gary Moore said the township is going to “take a step back, revisit and take another swing” at creating marijuana ordinances that align with the community’s interests. The Planning Commission will be charged with reexamining the zoning districts where marijuana facilities could open.
“Ross Township is a good community and we are going to work our way through this,” Moore said.
Kalamazoo County Clerk Tim Snow said he was notified by residents that a petition to recall the township board would be turned in to his office Wednesday afternoon.
