GREAT BARRINGTON — Registered voters will have the opportunity to weigh in once again on the town’s regulations regarding the location and physical requirements of marijuana establishments at this year’s annual town meeting.

At the Great Barrington Planning Board meeting on Thursday, March 12, public hearings were held for the proposals, with Planning Board Chairperson Brandee Nelson announcing at the start of the meeting that all public hearings would be kept open until its next meeting on Thursday, March 26 in order to give the public additional time to provide feedback in writing to the proposed zoning amendment changes.

During that meeting, the board is expected to deliberate on whether to provide endorsements for zoning changes that voters can weigh in on at the annual town meeting.

Great Barrington resident Michelle Loubert presented the first citizen petition to the board, which if passed, would make a number of changes to Section 7.18 of the town’s zoning bylaw.

While only 10 signatures from registered Great Barrington voters are required to get a citizen petition on the warrant for the annual town meeting, Loubert said she collected more than 70 signatures for the petition.
