Gurnee Village Board to Host Committee Meeting on Recreational Cannabis

On Monday, August 26th, 2019 the Gurnee Village Board will hold a regularly scheduled Committee of the Whole Meeting to discuss the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, which legalizes the possession and private use of cannabis for Illinois residents over 21 years of age after January 1, 2020.

The Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act allows municipalities to decide whether they prohibit recreational cannabis businesses from operating in their community, or whether they allow these types of uses but subject them to local zoning regulations and restrictions.

During the August 26th Committee of the Whole Meeting, the Village Board will not be taking any action or making any formal decisions on the community’s status regarding the prohibition of recreational cannabis sales in Gurnee. The Village Board will hear presentations from various stakeholders to provide different perspectives on the topic of recreational cannabis sales.

Interested members of the community are welcome to attend this public meeting. It will be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Gurnee Village Hall (325 N O’Plaine Road, Gurnee, IL 60031).

Those who are not a
ble to attend this meetings but would like to express their opinions can email the Village at comments@village.gurnee.il.us.
