|The Town of Halifax allows all facilities (cultivation, processing and manufacturing, retail) for both medical and recreational marijuana on land zoned "Industrial" by special permit. The Town's zoning map shows those areas that are zoned Industrial. At the Annual Town Meeting on
May 14, the townspeople voted against a change in the Town's zoning by-laws that would have allowed all recreational marijuana facilities on land zoned "business/commercial" by special permit.
Four Daughters Compassionate Care, LLC has signed a Host Community Agreement with the Town for a proposed cultivation and processing facility on River Street in Halifax. The agreement refers to "Exhibit A". Four Daughters will need to complete the licensing process with the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission and obtain a special permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals and site plan approval from the Planning Board in order to build this facility. A proposal has not been submitted to either Board. Both steps will be publicized on the Town's web site and in other venues. In addition, Four Daughters will need to host a public forum about this project. This will be publicized on the Town's web site and in other venues.
There was a public presentation (handout from presentation) and forum (link to the YouTube video; forum begins at 26:23) about the proposed facility on November 28, 2017.
At present, while the Town has received indications of interest from other parties, there are no other active proposals.
