Cities, counties will ask voters to ban psilocybin facilities

Measure 109 Implementation and Local Government Role. (Alex Cuyler, Lane County Intergovernmental Relations Manager)… this issue does not neatly fit into existing County Policy… under Measure 109, psilocybin-producing fungi is recognized as a crop for the purpose of a farm use, a farm, and farming practice… service center may not be located in municipalities on lands zoned exclusively for residential use… in order to qualify for the November ballot, measures must be provided to the County Clerk’s office by August 19th, 2022, and Explanatory Statements… must be provided to the County Clerk’s office by August 24, 2022.

The Board may, 1. Direct staff to schedule work on time, place, manner ordinances. 2. Do nothing. This would mean ORS Chapter 475A and OHA rulemaking to become the operative framework. 3. Direct staff to being work on an opt-out process (permanent or temporary). And opt-out ordinance would take a minimum of two readings (separated by two weeks) and must be referred to the Clerk by August 19th [2022]. This would entail July 19 first readings. August 2 public hearing and second reading. August 9 (referral order). If directed by the Board, could included the development of a Voter Pamphlet Explanatory Statement Committee. [Lane County] staff is without recommendation on this issue… In order to qualify for the November [2022] ballot, measures must be provided to the County Clerk’s office by August 19th, and Explanatory Statements (for the Statewide Voters Pamphlet) must be provided to the County Clerk’s office by August 24 [2022]…. if the Board indicates it would like staff to move forward, staff will take appropriate steps to prepare the necessary documents, Draft Ordinance, and associated Board Orders. Staff understand Coburg, Lowell, Dunes City and Cottage Grove are forwarding an opt-out Ordinance to its voters. Staff understands Linn County will forward and opt out Ordinance to its voters. Staff understands that Commissioners Deschutes, Washington, Marion, and Multnomah Counties are currently considering next steps.
