LU 23-0001: Psilocybin Time, Place and Manner Regulations

City Council directed staff and the Planning Commission to develop a time, place and manner ordinance for review and recommendation to City Council, so that the regulations would be ready for adoption and effective before licenses would be issued. This includes the possibility that City Council could repeal the ordinance before the deadline for placing a measure on next general election ballot.  Thus, as the Planning Department did for marijuana facilities, during the period of the ban, the development of a TPM ordinance – including public hearings by the Planning Commission and City Council – needs to occur in June-July.


Project Background / Summary: 

Measure 109 legalized and regulated the manufacture, sale, and administration of psilocybin in Oregon.  The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) began taking license applications on January 2, 2023. Cities may opt-out of licenses being issued for manufacturers and services centers within the City. Accordingly, on December 6, 2023, the City Council adopted Ordinance 2903 (ORS 475A) temporarily prohibiting psilocybin facilities. This temporary ban must be referred to the City’s voters at the next statewide general election (November 5, 2024) unless the Council adopts an ordinance repealing the prohibition before the election.


Project Updates: 



On Monday, February 27, the Commission will host an expert panel on psilocybin manufacturing and treatment services in Oregon.
