Tuesday night, Selectmen will hear about a plan to "limit the location of marijuana dispensaries" in town, according to Framingham Town Manager Bob Halpin.
Hapin, in his report to Framingham Selectmen, indicated that the working group of town officials plan to propose to "designate a portion of the Route 9 corridor east of Dinsmore (Avenue) to the Natick line" as an area for a potential dispensary.
Halpin, in his report, indicated that area would be the most suitable location, due to its high rent and public visibility.
It is unknown if any dispensary is interested in opening in Framingham. The town was the first in the Commonwealth to have a medical practice completed devoted to medical marijuana open in Janaury.
"To the extent that one emerged ... it would at least be in a visible, high traffic location and would operate with a higher degree of public scrutiny than other locations," said Halpin in his report.
The Framingham Planning Board is fine-tuning the boundaries of the proposed new zoning district and the "working group" is scheduled to make a presentation to Framingham Selectmen tomorrow night, Feb. 5.
A public hearing is planned for March and eventually Annual Town Meeting will be asked to vote on any zoning proposal.
