To solicit feedback about potential commercial cannabis regulations, the City of Concord recently issued a 10-question survey designed for the Concord community.
“The City Council is interested in hearing from their constituents about potential locations and requirements that may be imposed on commercial cannabis businesses,” said City Manager Valerie Barone.
In 2016, California voters approved Proposition 64, the Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult-Use of Marijuana Act, which legalized adult-use cannabis in the State. Under this ballot measure, each California city and county may choose to regulate or prohibit cannabis. In 2018, the City of Concord developed regulations applying to medicinal and adult-use cannabis testing laboratories, as well as medicinal cannabis manufacturing and distribution businesses.
This spring, the City Council and Concord Planning Commission directed staff to develop regulations regarding commercial cannabis retail (storefront and non-storefront) and microbusinesses (small-scale cultivation, distribution, manufacturing, and/or retail) for their consideration.
The City’s Cannabis Survey is available on the Concord Community Town Hall platform at: www.cityofconcord.org/townhall through Friday, July 19.
