Scoping Meeting for the Medical Cannabis Cultivation and Commerce Ordinance Environmental Impact Report
In accordance with the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Calaveras County released for public review a Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the Medical Cannabis Cultivation and Commerce Ordinance Project. The NOP was available for public review and comment between April 5, 2016 and May 5, 2016. Calaveras County has an existing ordinance regulating medical cannabis dispensaries and an interim ordinance regulating cultivation, but does not have a permanent regulatory framework for cultivation and other cannabis-related activities. In recognition of the fact that there are numerous growers currently operating in the County, the Board of Supervisors identified a public benefit through the permitting and regulating of this industry within unincorporated areas of the County. In addition, the County plans to permit and regulate the other commercial activities associated with medical cannabis, including its manufacture, transport, and distribution. A copy of the draft ordinance and NOP are available on the Planning Department’s website at http://planning.calaverasgov.us.
As the project represents a project of regional/local importance, the County will also be conducting a scoping meeting, during which members of the public can offer verbal comments related to the scope of the environmental analysis and potential environmental impacts to be addressed within the EIR. The scoping meeting will be held in San Andreas at 6:00 p.m. on July 20, 2016 at the Board of Supervisors Chambers, 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas, CA 95249.
