The Philomath City Council plans to review options on how to handle the possibility of psilocybin-related operations being located within the Philomath city limits during a meeting scheduled for Monday, July 25.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall and for those not attending in person, it will also be livestreamed on the city’s YouTube channel in addition.

Oregon voters in November 2020 passed Measure 109, which legalizes psychedelic mushrooms in service facilities for purposes that include treatment for those 21 and older suffering from certain ailments, including psychological trauma and addiction.

Two of the options require voter approval — a permanent ban or a two-year moratorium on psilocybin services. A third option would be to take no action and allow psilocybin to be regulated by the state.

Also on the agenda, councilors are scheduled to discuss League of Oregon Cities legislative priorities and listen to an update on the Millpond Crossing subdivision.

Councilors will meet ahead of time at 5:30 p.m. for a work session to discuss the Philomath Revitalization Plan and a downtown parking study.
