Taylor cannabis and beer bylaw gets third reading

Taylor is one step away from allowing cannabis dispensaries and breweries and distilleries to open up shop along the Alaska Highway through town.

Council gave third reading on Tuesday, Sept. 3, to zoning bylaw amendments that will allow retail cannabis, craft distillery, and micro brewery businesses to operate in commercial and service commercial zones. Those zones are confined to 100 and 100A streets along the highway.

Under the amendments, cannabis retailers won't be allowed within 200 metres of a daycare or school, or within 100 metres from the golf course, park, or a place of worship.

The bylaw will be formally adopted at a later meeting.
