Daily Herald staff report

The Bartlett village board approved the proposed 2013 property tax levy and an ordinance requiring medical marijuana cultivation centers and dispensing facilities to be special uses during a meeting Tuesday night. A public hearing on the proposed property tax levy -- which amounts to nearly $9.4 million, a more than 5 percent decrease from the 2012 extension -- is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Nov. 19. The ordinance regarding medical marijuana cultivation centers and dispensing facilities requires them to be special uses in either the village's I-1 or I-2 economic development area districts. That restriction, along with the state requirement that the facilities and centers be a certain distance from residentially zoned properties, schools and day care centers, means eligible spaces are only available in the Brewster Creek Business Park.
