Update - Cannabis Bylaw

At their April 5, 2021 meeting, the Planning Board voted to ask a small group of people who had previously expressed interest to prepare a Town-wide survey on a cannabis bylaw.  After the survey is completed, a committee will be formed to prepare a Bylaw that is based on the results of the survey. 

 

Community Outreach Meeting Held:

The Ember Gardens Community Outreach Meeting was held on February 24th and lasted over 4 hours.  The Ember Gardens team sent the following letter to the Town in response to that meeting:

Chesterfield Select Board and Residents,

Thank you for your participation in yesterday evening's Community Outreach Meeting. We heard quite a bit of thoughtful feedback and appreciated all of the public testimony.

At Ember Gardens, one of our core missions is our community values. As such, we have heard the community and will not be moving forward with our proposed cultivation site in Chesterfield on Willcutt Rd. The quality of life will be more affected by this proposal than we expected and that was never our goal or intention.

We hope that the discussion up to this point will serve as a useful steppingstone for Chesterfield to move forward into incorporating regulated cannabis into the community. In the meantime, Ember Gardens will continue to look for the right community and location to host our organic cannabis farm.

Sincerely, The Ember Gardens Team Shane, George, & Dan
