Public hearings are planned on changes to the Lake County Unified Development Ordinance that would create regulations for the siting and operation of medical marijuana cultivation centers and dispensaries in the unincorporated area. They will be held by the Regional Planning Commission at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Division of Transportation, 600 W. Winchester Road, Libertyville, and by the zoning board of appeals at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 6, at the county's central permit facility, 500 W. Winchester Road, Libertyville. The facilities are now allowed under Illinois law and Lake County, and more than three dozen municipalities worked together to develop model zoning regulations that focus on location, operation, parking, marijuana-related signage, and security.
