Munroe Falls City Council will meet tonight at 7 p.m. On its agenda is an amendment to legislation previously approved imposing a six-month moratorium on the granting of zoning or zoning use certificates for medical marijuana businesses.

Stow Planning Commission will have a community meeting Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. for public input on the city's comprehensive plan, which was last updated in 2001. A Comprehensive Plan is a guideline for the long range development of the city which establishes community goals and policies for land use and development within the City of Stow, and assists the administration, planning commission and City Council when making decisions regarding zoning, development, capital improvements or other service issues. A Comprehensive Plan includes broad land use policies, specific land use recommendations, and implementation or "action" recommendations.
The meeting will begin with a brief presentation and then attendees can visit different stations to view various aspects of the plan ask questions and/or make comments.
