In a letter to Marshall Thomsen, FVRD's Director of Planning and Development Margaret-Ann Thornton states, "Dear Mr. Thomsen: This letter is further to your letter of May 9, 2014 regarding your notice to apply to the Minister of Health for a proposed Producer's License under the MMPR for your property located In Hatzic Valley, BC. The Property is located within Electoral Area "F" of the Fraser Valley Regional District.

The property is currently zoned "A-2" by Zoning Bylaw No.559-1992. This zoning bylaw was recently amended by FVRD zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 1257, 2014 which was adopted by the Regional Board on April 23, 2014 to include a definition for medical marijuana grow operation as follows:

"MEDICAL MARIJUANA GROW OPERATION means the cultivation, growth, storage or distribution, testing or research of marijuana for medical purposes as lawfully permitted and authorized under the applicable federal or provincial law."

Medical marijuana grow operations as defined above, are considered a permitted use for the Electoral Area "F".
