February 17 Council meeting actions

At its regular meeting of February 17, Council took the following action on these community issues of significance:

  • Medical marijuana: Adopted a resolution reaffirming and confirming that the Town of Windsor Zoning Ordinance operates under the principles of permissive zoning and that marijuana cultivation is a prohibited use in the Town of Windsor. Regarding action or regulation of commercial marijuana cultivation within certain zoning districts, Council decided to incorporate this issue in the General Plan Update process which will allow for further community input and viewing of the issue in a larger context.
  • Vacation rentals: Council decided that they do wish to permit vacation rentals by owner in Town limits and impose transient occupancy tax on the rentals, and directed staff to develop a vacation rental policy and bring the matter back to Council for discussion and/or action. The Council stressed that the policy should be simple to implement and follow.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
