Public hearing on cannabis sales in Park Forest set for Oct. 8 at Freedom Hall

Freedom Hall

On January 1, 2020, the State of Illinois will permit licensed businesses to sell, grow, and process adult use recreational cannabis. The Village of Park Forest is currently in the process of determining whether or not to permit these businesses to operate within the Village. To that end, the Village’s Planning and Zoning Commission will conduct a Public Hearing on October 8, 2019, at 7:00 P.M. at Freedom Hall, 410 Lakewood Boulevard, Park Forest, Illinois, to consider making Text Amendments to the Unified Development Ordinance (Zoning). The proposed Text Amendments would regulate Adult Use Cannabis Business Establishments as permitted by Illinois Public Act 101-0027 (Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act).

NOTE:  Individuals wishing to speak will have no more than five minutes each, on a first come first served basis. The public hearing will be open for comments for 90 minutes or until the last person has spoken, whichever comes first, after which the Commission will deliberate and make its recommendation to the Board of Trustees on this matter. Comments may also be submitted in writing prior to the hearing to the Department of Economic Development and Planning, Village Hall, 350 Victory Drive, Park Forest, or at the hearing.

A copy of the proposed Ordinance revisions and additional information regarding the petition is on file with the Department of Economic Development and Planning.
