The Winthrop Town Council will hold a public hearing on May 21 to take comments on the town’s marijuana retail sales zoning and policies. The hearing will be at the Winthrop Barn. Council meetings begin at 7 p.m.
The hearing was postponed earlier while the council considered an appeal of the town planner’s decision to prohibit the retail sale of marijuana in the Horizon Flats area. The council rejected that appeal in a 3-2 vote. Austin Lott, who is seeking to operate a retail marijuana outlet at a Horizon Flats location, had appealed planner Rocklynn Culp’s determination that the area’s current light industrial zoning doesn’t permit such a retail use.
