FOG UPDATE: Board of Supervisors’ decision yesterday
The Board of Supervisors decided yesterday to include Phase II of the Cannabis Ordinance (Neighborhood Compatibility) in the County’s two-year work plan. All your emails had a great impact, so thank you for those! The final vote was put off until June 4, because some of the budget and time allocation issues were sent back to Permit Sonoma for clarification. FOG believes that Phase II will move ahead though, and that is what we were working towards.
It appears that the supervisors recognize that the current Cannabis Ordinance has problems, including community compatibility issues, and so it is likely that the County will work to replace the current ordinance with a new Cannabis Ordinance. That is good news because we feel that the supervisors will elicit input from the public and neighbors in drafting the new ordinance . Their goal is to reduce conflicts with neighbors while streamlining the process for industry. We are cautiously optimistic.
