The public is invited to submit comments to the City Council regarding adult-use cannabis retail dispensaries or on-site consumption facilities in the Saratoga Springs. Comments to the Mayor and all Commissioners should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Cannabis".
The decision for City Council is whether to opt-out of allowing adult-use cannabis retail dispensaries or on-site consumption facilities from locating within Saratoga Springs. The legislation provides that if a municipality does not opt-out by December 31, 2021, the municipality will be unable to opt-out at a future date. However, if a municipality does opt-out, it may opt back in, to allow either or both adult-use retail dispensary or on-site consumption facility types by repealing the local law which established the prohibition. More information can be found on the New York State website about the laws, legislation and taxation and the Office of Cannabis.
