Town to Study How Grow-Ops Impact Property Values

By Hempology | January 1, 2007

In light of health concerns and the impacts on adjacent property values, Town staff will take a look at what the municipality can do about marijuana grow-operations in area homes.

Ward 4 Councillor Bob Inglis raised the issue at a recent council meeting.

Town CAO Denis Perlin said the issue is also being examined at the regional level to see if there is a uniform approach that can be taken. Perlin said Town staff will report back to council on the grow op issue in 2007.

Wards 1/2 Regional Councillor Clark Somerville said last term Town ccouncil passed a bylaw requiring an occupancy permit for any building that had previously been identified as a grow-op.
