HR County Planning Panel Develops Marijuana And STR Recommendations

The Hood River County Planning Commission has developed its recommendations for zoning ordinance amendments to regulate marijuana businesses and short-term rentals in unincorporated areas.  For marijuana, County Community Development Director John Roberts says the regulations allow growing and processing in exclusive farm use zones, processing in industrial zones, and retailing in commercial zones.  He added the panel decided to prohibit growing and processing in rural residential zones due to compatibility issues and the sizes of parcels within the zone.  On short-term rentals, the Commission is recommending prohibiting short-term rentals in resource and industrial zones, and allow them with a permit in residential and rural unincorporated community zones, with a total cap of 60.  The County Commission will now consider the Planning Commission recommendations, with hearing dates still to be determined.
