Brighton City Council voted Saturday to take a first step toward potentially allowing certain types of marijuana businesses in city limits, but not in the downtown.
The city currently does not allow any types of recreational or medical marijuana businesses.
City Council voted, 6-1, to begin an ordinance review process that, if approved by city officials, would possibly allow for four marijuana business licenses in the city.
As proposed — and it could change — the city would allow two marijuana dispensaries and two testing facilities. Brighton is not currently considering allowing marijuana grows, processing facilities, secure transportation businesses or any others.
The proposal would not allow marijuana dispensaries within either 1,000 or 500 feet of the downtown business district, including Main Street.
