In 2009, the Town of Breckenridge adopted measures to allow sales of medical marijuana in specific areas of town. In 2012, Colorado voters approved Amendment 64, which allows for the retail sales of marijuana and provides local municipalities to regulate in their own communities. In 2014, Breckenridge adopted policies for retail marijuana stores in addition to medical marijuana centers. After public input, the Council felt that the presence of marijuana businesses in the downtown core may discourage tourism, which is the economic driver, and would not support our community’s vision - where residents and visitors experience a historic mountain town with characteristic charm that offers a safe, friendly and peaceful atmosphere where individuals can live, work, play and raise a family. To mitigate potential negative impacts on surrounding businesses, regulations were adopted to restrict both medical and retail marijuana businesses locations outside of the downtown district. These restrictions include the number of marijuana businesses, where they are located (i.e. second floor vs. ground floor, separation from youth-related operations, etc.). Council is reconsidering the allowance of retail sales of marijuana in the downtown core and would like your input. The Town will be asking for input from a variety of our community’s population, and is utilizing EngageBreckenridge as one of these tools.
