It’s now a matter of when, not if, cannabis shops will start popping up in West Kelowna.
This week, city council adopted zoning bylaw amendments for five non-medical retail cannabis shops.
The proposed locations, as per city hall’s agenda, are Main Street, Hoskins Road, Byland Road and two on Industrial Road.
The city said it will now send recommendations to the BC Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch in support of the five locations.
However, between getting provincial support plus business licensing and building permits from the city, it’s projected that the cannabis shops likely won’t be open until October.
