Planning Commission Meeting on LU-22-048; Psilocybin Code

Calendar Date:
Tuesday, October 18, 2022 - 7:00pm

This meeting will be to review proposed amendments to the Benton County Development Code to address the growing and processing of psilocybin-producing fungus and treatment centers (service centers) at which psilocybin-containing products are administered to people.  The proposal would amend Chapters 51 (Development Code Administration) and Chapter 91 (Specific Use Standards) of the Development Code.  State law allowing the growing, processing and distribution of psilocybin-containing mushrooms and products goes into effect January 1, 2023.  Benton County needs to adopt regulations on where and how those land uses can occur, prior to the law going into effect.

Please check back for more details.
