Phase 2 Sonoma County Cannabis Update from Permit Sonoma

Graton,  below is a link titled “Cannabis Ordinance Update September 6, 2019”. Please watch the video which is only 8 minutes long and is of great interest to all of us. Make no mistake about it: Phase 2 is a “do over”.  They will be doing their “outreach” to the community, industry and other “stakeholders” as though we never submitted any input in Phase 1.

The new Planning Director, Milan Nevajda, begins by speaking directly to the viewer and outlines the different goals of the Ordinance Update. Amy Lyle continues with a brief report about the status of the applications then Nevajda finishes with more goals (i.e. of great interest to us) and announces the timeline.  “Scoping” is starting immediately and by the summer of 2020 he expects to have the environmental part completed. It will be a two year program.
