MENDOCINO Co., 3/14/21 — In January, the Mendocino County’s Board of Supervisors approved an initial proposal for changes to the county’s cannabis cultivation ordinance, which would allow an expansion of the amount of land per parcel to be commercially cultivated when the county re-opens to new commercial cannabis cultivation permits. This Friday, March 19, the proposed ordinance changes will be heard before the Planning Commission, along with proposed changes to the county’s cannabis facilities ordinance. The full planning commission agenda for that meeting can be found here.
The Mendocino Voice has been invited to moderate a panel, hosted by the Cannabis Business Association of Mendocino County, on the topic of the proposed phase three ordinance changes, taking place on Monday, March 15 at 4 p.m. via Zoom, and Facebook livestream, and saved afterwards.
