Vote sets medical marijuana rules

Residents at fall Town Meeting last Monday approved a zoning measure regulating the location of medical marijuana facilities in town. The measure allows dispensaries only in the industrial zoning district, and even there only by special permit, and requires that they not be within 1,000 feet of a school, child care center, library, or other place where minors congregate. Town Meeting also authorized $400,000 to purchase the Crane Farm, a 31.6-acre parcel on Crane Street, for conservation, contingent on the town’s receiving grants and private funds to cover most of the costs. After acquiring the land, the town would convey it to a conservation group. The meeting also authorized $137,000 to cover the additional funds needed to purchase land at the corner of Newland and Newcomb streets to use for a cemetery. Town Meeting last May had appropriated $338,000 for the purchase.
