To see if the Town will vote to amend section 6600 of the Zoning Bylaw, Adult Use Recreational Marijuana Establishments, as follows, or take any other action relative thereto:

a)      In subsection 6640.5, revise clause a) to read as follows, with deletions shown by strikethrough and additions shown by underlining:

The maximum number of Marijuana Establishments in the Town of Pepperell shall be limited as follows:

a) The number of Marijuana Retailers shall not exceed twenty percent (20%) of the number of alcohol licenses issued pursuant to M.G.L. c. 138, §15 for retail sale of alcohol not to be drunk on the premises in the Town of Pepperell, said 20% figure to be rounded up to the next whole number.  The number of Marijuana Retailers shall not exceed two.

b)   In section 6650 revise the third sentence to read as follows, with deletions shown by strikethrough and additions shown by underlining:

While the SPGA is authorized to approve Special Permits for Marijuana Retailers in an amount up to, but not exceeding 20% of the number of licenses issued within the Town pursuant to M.G.L. c. 138, §15 for the retail sale of alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises two, the Zoning Bylaw shall not be construed to obligate the SPGA to approve any particular application for a Special Permit just because the maximum number of Special Permits has not been approved.
