NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Paso Robles Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing to consider the following project:
Project Description: The City of Paso Robles is holding a scheduled public hearing for the Planning Commission to consider recommending a zone text amendment to the City Council which amends Chapter 21.33 of Article IIA of Title 21 of the El Paso de Robles Municipal Code regarding commercial cannabis use. The amendments establish that delivery-only commercial cannabis may be a permitted use subject to the review and approval of a conditional use permit within the Riverside Corridor (RC) and the C-3 district. A delivery-only commercial cannabis business will be prohibited throughout all other zones in the City. The maximum number of permits available will be subject to Council approval. Additionally, the amendments will impose certain requirements, operational restrictions, and standards on all permitted delivery-only cannabis businesses. All other commercial cannabis uses, such as commercial cultivation, manufacturing, testing, distribution, transportation, and retail, are still prohibited within the City.
Applicant: City of Paso Robles
Location: The regulations will apply citywide.
CEQA Determination: The project is exempt from the requirements of California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) because they do not have the potential to cause a significant effect on the environment.
Hearing Date: The Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing on August 23, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber, 1000 Spring Street, Paso Robles
The City of Paso Robles is holding hybrid Planning Commission meetings. The public has the option to attend the meeting in person or to participate remotely, pursuant to AB 361, which allows for a deviation of the Ralph M. Brown Act’s standard teleconference requirements. The meeting will be a hybrid meeting because there exists a Governor proclaimed state of emergency and state and local officials are recommending measures to promote social distancing. Planning Commission meetings will be held in this manner until further notice. If maximum capacity of the Council Chamber is met, additional attendees will be asked to participate in the meeting via the remote options listed below.
To participate remotely, residents can livestream the meeting at www.prcity.com/youtube, and call (805) 865-7276 to provide live public comment via telephone. The phone line will open just prior to the start of the meeting. Further directions on providing live telephone comments will be included in the Commission agenda and during the public hearing. Written public comments can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or US Mail (submit early) to the Community Development Department, 1000 Spring Street, Paso Robles, CA 93446 provided that the comments are received prior to the time of the public hearing. Comments received prior to 12:00 noon on the day of the meeting will be posted as an addendum to the agenda. If submitting written comments, please note the agenda item by number or name.
Challenge to the application in court, will be limited to issues raised at the public hearings or in written correspondence delivered to the Planning Commission or City Council at, or prior to, public hearings.
