EAST PEORIA (HOI) — Weeks after approving the city’s second cannabis dispensary, East Peoria’s City Council voted on a zoning ordinance for the site.
During Tuesday’s meeting, the council voted 4-1 to approve a conditional use ordinance at 300 S. Main St., located near the Kroger, allowing official permission for the site to go in.
Council member Mike Sutherland was the only vote opposing the decision.
The site was selected for its safe distance from businesses, including sitting at least 1,000 feet from the nearest daycare.
The council also voted to approve an ordinance to least 2,500 feet of distance between any future cannabis dispensaries and casinos.
