- Ordinance 13-04, regarding Marijuana Usage, was passed on Second Reading by the City Council on April 9, 2013 at 6:00pm at the Castle Pines Community Center.
Please note that Ordinance 13-04 concerns personal possession of marijuana, prohibiting the use or display of marijuana in public places by individuals. At City Council’s direction, the City Attorney is also drafting legislation prohibiting the retail sale and distribution of marijuana within the city limits of Castle Pines.
Because the local regulation provisions of Amendment 64 are enacted in part through zoning and land use restrictions, the proposed ordinance prohibiting retail sale and distribution must first go to the City Planning Commission on April 25, 2013. The Planning Commission will then refer its recommendation of the proposed ordinance to City Council for further action in May.
Proposed Ordinance 13-05 - Marijuana Ban
The City Council will have two separate opportunities to hear public comment on the proposed ban on retail sale and distribution of marijuana on May 14 and June 11, 2013. Additional information along with meeting times and places will be posted on this web site and published in the City's email newsletter, "News and Notes."
