Nelson residents can expect a survey in the mail next month about the impending legalization of cannabis.
The city has hired Michelle Laurie to gather public feedback as it develops local regulations.
She says the survey will be sent to 5,000 households with a due date of Feb. 28.
Laurie says they want feedback on the number of cannabis outlets people would support and their location.
The survey will also be sent to all 1,200 businesses within city limits.
Open houses are planned Feb. 20 and 22 along with smaller meetings with certain groups, including seniors and youth.
The feds intend to legalize pot this summer.
