On December 5, 2017, Planning Commission approved Resolution 17-08 on a code amendment for opiate substitution treatment facilities. The staff recommendation was based on information raised by the public and planning commissioners, including reviewing legal developments since the original opioid treatment facility zoning ordinance was passed in 2003.
City Council considered that recommendation at their public hearing on February 21, 2018. After public testimony and Council discussion, Council President Roberts asked staff to return at a later date with more information regarding the options discussed at the public hearing. At the March 7 public hearing, City Council approved a revision to the ordinance as amended.
