The City of Paso Robles will hold two meetings over the next week related to commercial cannabis activities.
1. Cannabis Forum on Thursday, August 18, 2022 at 6:00PM in the City Council chamber at 1000 Spring Street. The community forum is part of the City Council’s ongoing evaluation of establishing a cannabis governance framework, including the potential legalization of retail cannabis storefronts. City staff and the City’s cannabis consultant will provide a presentation on the status of the cannabis industry and including a discussion on potential expansion of cannabis-related businesses within the City.
Residents can participate in the forum in person or follow along at www.pricity.com/youtube and call in to 805.865.7276 to give public comment during the meeting.
The City is asking residents to give input via an online survey regarding cannabis business types, where cannabis business should be located and preferences on buffers from sensitive uses. The survey is live now and will remain open until September 5, 2022.
2. Planning Commission Public Hearing on Tuesday, August 23, 2022 at 6:30PM in the City Council chamber at 1000 Spring Street.
The Planning Commission will consider recommending a zoning code amendment to the City Council to allow delivery-only commercial cannabis offices as a conditionally allowed use within the Riverside Corridor (RSC) and the Commercial/Light Industry (C3) zoning districts. A 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. No other commercial cannabis uses, such as commercial cultivation, manufacturing, testing, distribution, transportation, and retail, would be permitted by this amendment. Discussion of other commercial cannabis activities will occur at the community forum on August 18, 2022 (see details above).
The agenda for the Planning Commission hearing, including a staff report and draft resolution, will be published Friday, August 19, 2022, at www.prcity.com/agendacenter. Written public comments can be submitted via email to email@example.com 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.
Residents can participate in the public hearing in person or follow along at www.pricity.com/youtube and call in to 805.865.7276 to give public comment during the meeting.
