Cannabis, short-term rentals and the Quang Tri Monument top the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting of the Westminster City Council.

The council will hear a report from staff on commercial cannabis regulations in Orange County cities.

Also, the council will hear the results of research on regulations governing short-term rentals of residential property.

Two related items concern the controversial Quang Tri Monument. The first refers to the recommendation of the monument committee as to depiction and design, and the second is consideration of potential locations for the monument.

According to a staff report, the most feasible locations are:

  • Westminster Park 
  • Tony Lam (formerly Park West Park) Park
  • Elden Gillespie Park
  • Sid Goldstein Freedom Park
  • Westminster Memorial Park (privately-owned cemetery.

The monument is intended to commemorate a victory in 1972 by South Vietnamese and allied units against Communist forces. The council will meet in person and via teleconference/web conference with a closed session at 5 p.m. and the open session scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. 

Council chambers are located 8200 Westminster Blvd.
