An ordinance has been drafted to regulate personal cultivation of recreational and medicinal cannabis, to establish land use standards applicable to commercial delivery of medicinal cannabis, and to prohibit commercial operations, commercial cultivation, and testing of recreational marijuana in the City. Staff is proposing a series of zoning text amendments that rely on the existing land use entitlement process to prohibit the establishment of new commercial cannabis businesses in the City, with the exception of allowing a maximum of two non-storefront medical cannabis delivery-only businesses. The zoning amendments also regulate the placement of personal use outdoor cultivation, consistent with State law. In addition, staff is proposing adoption of a selection procedure that the City will utilize to choose non-storefront medical cannabis delivery-only businesses to proceed through the entitlement and permit processes.
