407 S.View – Oreana

The Village Board would like to hear from residents regarding proposed zoning ordinances for Adult-Use Cannabis businesses locating within the Village of Oreana.

Question before the board: Should the Village of Oreana “opt-in” or “opt-out” of allowing adult use cannabis businesses to locate within Village limits? These businesses could include a cultivation center, craft grower, processing organization, infuser organization, dispensing organization or transporting organization.

The Village Board will not address medical use of cannabis, or the use and/or possession of recreational cannabis, as Illinois State law has already addressed these issues. The only issue for the Village Board to resolve is whether or not to allow the above mentioned businesses to locate within Village limits.

The town hall meeting will include a time for residents to address the board for up to 3 minutes each. The board looks forward to hearing from residents regarding this issue. The regular Village Board will take place following the town hall. This issue will be listed on the agenda, and the board will have the option to vote on this issue at that time if they desire.
