Media and Interested Parties

Clackamas County is proposing amendments to its Zoning and Development Ordinance (ZDO) that, if approved, would limit the number of marijuana production licenses permitted on a tract of land in three specific zoning districts.

The Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners will hold public hearings in November and January to consider the proposed amendments to ZDO 841, Marijuana Production, Processing, and Retailing.

  • Planning Commission Public Hearing
    Monday, Nov. 26, 2018; 6:30 p.m.
    Development Services Building Auditorium, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City
  • Board of County Commissioners Public Hearing
    Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019; 9:30 a.m.
    Board Hearing Room, Public Services Building 4th floor, 2051 Kaen Road, Oregon City

The amendments, if approved, would limit a tract of land (one or more contiguous lots of record under the same ownership) in the Ag/Forest (AG/F), Exclusive Farm Use (EFU) and Timber (TBR) zoning districts to one of two license limit options:

  • Only one premises licensed for marijuana production by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) or
  • Only one medical marijuana grow site registered by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).

There are no other substantive amendments to the regulations.  

The draft amendments are available to review online or in person at the Planning & Zoning Division, Development Services Building, 2nd floor, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City. 

Members of the public are also welcome to submit written testimony by US mail, by email or drop-off at the Planning & Zoning Division to Glen Hamburg, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City, OR, 97045, or ghamburg@clackamas.us
