The Boston Planning & Development Agency will host a virtual public meeting on Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 6:00 PM–7:30 PM to present proposed amendments to the Boston Zoning Code. The proposed amendments make regulatory changes around the definitions, approval, and regulation of cannabis establishments, by adjusting buffer requirements to Cannabis Establishments to match the state's requirement for a 500 foot buffer from school entrances and removing the current additional restriction of requiring a half-mile buffer between establishments in the City.
