Mendocino County Board of Supervisors to Hold Cannabis Meeting
The Board of Supervisors will hold a cannabis meeting on November 16, 2018, to discuss the proposed cannabis overlay and Cannabis Ad Hoc recommendations regarding the Cannabis Cultivation Ordinance.
Mendocino County has engaged Michael Baker International to amend the County’s cannabis regulations to establish two types of overlay zones: areas with modified cannabis cultivation regulations to allow operators to enjoy more flexible cannabis regulations and development standards (Opt-In Zones), and areas where new commercial cannabis cultivation would be prohibited and existing permitted commercial cultivation would sunset (Opt-Out Zones). The proposed overlays were reviewed by the Planning Commission on October 18, 2018, and will be before the Board of Supervisors on November 16, 2018.
The Cannabis Ad Hoc Committee hosted a community meeting on October 29, 2018, on proposed revision to the Cannabis Cultivation Ordinance (Code Section 10A.17 and 20.242). The community meeting gave residents a chance to hear directly from the Ad Hoc Committee and for the public to provide feedback on the proposed revisions. The Cannabis Ad Hoc will be presenting their proposed revisions to the Board of Supervisor at the meeting on November 16, 2018.
The cannabis Board meeting will be held Friday, November 16, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Mendocino County Administration Center in Board Chambers. The meeting will also be live streamed on the County’s YouTube channel at: www.youtube.com/
