the application was denied, by
unanimous vote, based on the
lack of off-street parking.
“It’s zoned commercial but
it’s really not suitable for com-
mercial, which is probably why
it’s never been commercial,”
Commissioner John Lawrence
Booze may bring an amend-
ed plan before the commission
in the future and is examining
the possibility of installing a cul-
vert over the ditch at the front of
his property, which would allow
him to create parking spaces in
his front yard off Highway 3.
“I’m excited about this,”
Booze said. “I want this as
low-impact as possible on the
neighbors, I appreciate you all
coming and letting me know
how you feel about it. Maybe I
can change some minds.”
Enterprise to opt out
Enterprise City Council vot-
ed unanimously during its Nov.
9 meeting to move forward with
an application to opt out of all
forms of licensing with regard to
the legal use of marijuana within
city limits and to forgo any relat-
ed tax money from the state.
The decision was based on a
shared perception that the state
did not yet have a clear plan
for management of recreational
marijuana and public opinion
within the county with regard
to Measure 91 already had been
made clear. Sixty-one percent
of Wallowa County voters op-
posed Measure 91, making both
the county and its cities eligible
for the opt-out provision.
“Nobody wants to be caught
up in the state’s mess,” City
Administrator Michelle Young
said. “Because (the percentage
of vote against Measure 91 in
Wallowa County) was such a
high number, that does give us a
message. I think we’re wiser to
opt out now and then, when the
good for our community.”
The ability to opt back in at
a future date was discussed with
Commissioner Dave Hayslip
expressing a desire to keep op-
tions open should public opinion
change and income become a
“When the time comes and
there’s money involved, can we
get back in and not lose mon-
ey?,” Hayslip asked.
sioners to come up with a solid
answer to that question, as the
process for opting back in has
not been established.
“(The regulations) are still
very convoluted in my mind,”
Mayor Steve Lear said. “It’s my
understanding that if we agree
to opt out at this particular time,
we can change our minds in the
future when the rules and regu-
lations are set.”
