City Hall, Lakeport, CA-- On February 8, 2017 at 5:00 PM the Planning Commission for the City of Lakeport will hold a public meeting to discuss possible amendments to the Lakeport Zoning Ordinance Section 17.38 concerning the regulation of Medical Marijuana Cultivation.  Consideration will be given to the development of procedures for the cultivation of marijuana for non-commercial personal use.  Amendments under consideration reflect state regulations associated with the recent passage of Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AMUA) in 2016 and regulations associated with the 2015 passage of legislation collectively known as the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA).

The Planning Commission will consider the following:

·         A short discussion on the difference between commercial and non-commercial marijuana cultivation

·         Number of Marijuana plants on a residential property allowed for personal use

·         Indoor cultivation of Marijuana for personal use

·         Outdoor cultivation of Marijuana for personal use

·         The permitting process for cultivation of Marijuana for personal use in the City of Lakeport

·         Any other issues associated with non-commercial personal marijuana cultivation

Retail sales and processing of cannabis will not be a part of the discussion on February 8, 2017.  The City of Lakeport is dividing legalized marijuana uses into two categories commercial and non-commercial. At this time, the City is developing regulations for cultivation of marijuana for non-commercial personal use on residential properties only. 

The public is encouraged to attend and participate.  Following that meeting the City will develop an ordinance for the regulations for non-commercial personal use marijuana cultivation, and return to the Planning Commission for review of the ordinance and approval by the City Council.   If you have any questions feel free to contact the Community Development Department at (707) 263-5613 or dchance@cityoflakeport.com.
