The Town of Oakville decided at its Council meeting Monday night that it will opt-out and not allow privately-operated cannabis retail stores in Oakville.
“Town Council’s vote to opt-out reflects what we have heard throughout our community,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “We are supporting a wait and watch approach at this time. Municipalities just don’t have enough input into cannabis retail stores when it comes to notice, location, zoning and licensing.”
Council will reconsider its decision in December 2019 when staff will bring forward a new report once more information on retail cannabis is available.
