Review And Public Hearing On Marijuana Regulatory Ordinance

Review And Public Hearing On Marijuana Regulatory Ordinance

The Calaveras County Planning Commission has scheduled a review and public hearing on a marijuana regulatory ordinance this coming Wednesday. Following the outcome of the meeting, the commission is expected to submit a document to the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors outlining regulations on marijuana farming by the middle of next month. Wednesday’s meeting will center on a county-crafted ordinance that has been based on suggestions District 1 Supervisor Gary Tofanelli made during an Oct. 24 hearing. Per requirements he outlined, all outdoor cannabis grows could only occur on parcels zoned Agriculture One, Agriculture Reserve and General Forestry of 50 acres or more. Light industry and business park zones would be the only areas people would be able to grow indoors. The county would cap farms at 50 applicants to start with, to allow the county to control the process. The hearing, scheduled to begin at 8:30 inside the Board of Supervisors Chambers at the Government Center in San Andreas, should conclude within the day.
