    Relative to
    Proposed Zoning By-Law Amendments
    Pursuant to G.L. c. 40A, s. 5

    The Planning Board of the Town of Oak Bluffs will hold a public hearing to discuss proposed amendments to the town’s zoning by-laws. The public hearing will be held as follows:
    Oak Bluffs Town Hall-Lower Level Meeting Room
    56 School Street, Oak Bluffs, MA
    Tuesday, March 7, 2017
    Time: 5 P.M.
    The subject matter of the proposed amendments is/are as indicated below. The complete text and maps relative to the proposed amendments are available for inspection during regular business hours at the following place(s):
    Town Hall Planning Board and Building Department, 56 School Street, Oak Bluffs, MA (8:30 A.M. to 4 P.M.)
    Subject Matter of Proposed Amendments
    Amending the Oak Bluffs Zoning By-laws, section 8 SPECIAL DISTRICTS, to insert the MARIJUANA ESTABLISHMENT OVERLAY DISTRICT (MEOD) as section 8.5.
    Purpose of the By-Law: The purpose of this section is to establish areas in which a Marijuana Establishment may be located, while protecting the Town’s unique community character and while minimizing any adverse impact on adjacent properties, residential neighborhoods, elderly housing facilities, schools, and other places where children congregate, as well as other land uses potentially incompatible with a Marijuana Establishment. Since a Marijuana Establishment will serve both Oak Bluffs and the surrounding communities, the location of the MEOD is designed to allow for ease of access by both private vehicles and public transportation, to provide sufficient parking.
    Locations: The MEOD is composed of the following areas, which is identical to the overlay district providing for Registered Marijuana Dispensaries in Section 8.4 of this By-law. The following parcels, as set forth on the maps of the Town Board of Assessors:
    Map 6 Parcel 43, Map 6 Parcel 46, Map 6 Parcel 46.1, Map 6 Parcel 9, Map 7 Parcel 1, Map 24 Parcel 7, Map 24 Parcel 8, Map 24 Parcel 9, Map 24 Parcel 10, Map 24 Parcel 11, Map 24 Parcel 12, Map 40 Parcel 10, Map 40 Parcel 11, Map 40 Parcel 11.1
