Marijuana Business Area Maps – Current Zoning Code Proposals going to City Council on October 25

  • The map with the pink shading for marijuana businesses shows where all marijuana business types may locate in Billings – dispensaries, grow operations, manufacturing, labs, and transportation facilities.

  • The map with the green shading for marijuana businesses shows where ONLY dispensaries may also locate in Billings. This map reflects the proposed changes to the zoning ordinance that the City Zoning Commission is recommending to the City Council.

NOTE: It is very important to note that neither of these maps should be used for regulatory purposes and does not guarantee any one a business location even in a shaded area. These maps are for overview only of the approximate areas where marijuana businesses may be allowed under these zoning code scenarios. Any specific application for zoning or licensing of a marijuana business in Billings will have to be specifically reviewed for all code compliance at the time of application.
