From the County of Humboldt:

On Thursday beginning at 6:00 pm, or as soon thereafter as possible, the Humboldt County Planning Commission will be holding a public hearing to consider making a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors on the county’s Commercial Cannabis Land Use Ordinance (CCLUO)  and Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the proposed ordinance. 

A sampling of the principal changes to County code being considered in the ordinance include:

  • Repeal of the current permit application deadline (12/31/16) to allow for submittal of applications for commercial cannabis activities, including cultivation
  • Broadening the scope of the current regulations to encompass commercial cannabis activities for recreational users authorized under the recent passage of the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA)
  • Providing for a greater diversity of areas where cannabis cultivation will be allowed to expand or occur
  • Developing performance standards for controlling odor impacts from cultivation
  • Special requirements/limitations for projects located within spheres of influence or community areas
More detail about the policies being reviewed at the hearings is on the county’s website at the following link:
