Update, 2:19 p.m.: We spoke with Tuck by phone, who added that months of planning have been leading up to this meeting.
"We’ve been working with several groups, including the Medical Cannabis Council, and CONO [Council of Neighbors and Organizations] and others, trying to meet, and trying to figure out things, and we’ve made some progress," Tuck says. "There’s still differences of opinion as you can imagine, between the groups. But anyway, we’re going forward at the planning commission meeting.
"And so it’s a public meeting. People are welcome to attend and speak one way or the other. A week before the meeting, our staff report will be available to the public."
