Sandwich Special Town Meeting to Debate Recreational Pot Shops

SANDWICH – Sandwich voters will debate the prohibition of recreational marijuana stores at Monday night’s special town meeting.

Several Cape Cod towns have been already banned the pot shops at their town meetings this fall. It would not impact medical marijuana proposals.

Sandwich residents will also tackle a zoning change that would create an overlay district for the Henry T. Wing School.

The move would allow municipal parcels to be redeveloped into other public or private uses. That could include artist studios, museums, assisted living facilities, adult day care and cultural facilities, among others.

The town has been debating what to do with the old school since it closed in 2015.

The Cape Cod Collaborative is leasing the building until 2020, but what the building should be used for after that is undecided.

Sandwich’s special town meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Sandwich High School.
