Report to City Council regarding regulations related to Cannabis

On November 13, 2017, the Piedmont Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend City Council adoption of an ordinance amending Division 17.48 of the City Code to regulate private cannabis cultivation and commercial cannabis facilities in response to changes in State law. In order to maintain local control over all cannabis land uses to the fullest extent allowed by law, the recommended regulations will:

  1. a)Continue the current prohibition of all commercial cannabis facilities for cultivation, distribution, transportation, storage, manufacturing, processing, and sales in all zones;
  2. b)Allow personal cannabis cultivation inside private residences, subject to reasonable restrictions; and
  3. c)Allow the delivery of cannabis and cannabis products to individuals within the City limits, subject to reasonable restrictions.

More information on this issue is provided on the City’s website.
