Cannabis Regulations Public Hearing

The City’s Draft Comprehensive Cannabis Ordinance will be considered at a public hearing with the Planning Commission on Thursday, October 12, 2017, at or after 4:00 PM, in the City Council Chamber, City Hall, 100 Santa Rosa Avenue, Santa Rosa.

The purpose of the public hearing will be to receive public comment prior to Planning Commission consideration of a recommendation to the City Council to adopt an ordinance amending several sections of the City Code to regulate cannabis.


The City Council prioritized the development of medical cannabis regulations as one of the top 5 initiatives in 2016/17.  On June 6th, the City Council reaffirmed that priority as part of their 2017/18 goal setting process.  The City has made significant progress towards developing a regulated market for the medical cannabis industry to support cannabis businesses while developing processes and regulations that mirror other similar businesses that protect employees, the community at large, and the environment.
