On December 5, 2017, City Council adopted an ordinance to add Chapter 9.44 to the Santa Barbara Municipal Code (SBMC) to regulate and permit commercial cannabis businesses. On January 23, 2018, City Council established a limit of three (3) Retail Storefront Commercial Cannabis Businesses and adopted a Resolution establishing the application process and criteria to be used for any permitted commercial cannabis business including Retail Storefront, Retail-Delivery Only, Cultivation, Manufacturing, Distribution, and Testing.
SBMC Chapter 9.44.090(C) requires the City Administrator, or his or her designee, to conduct a public meeting so that the public may comment on the proposed commercial cannabis business.
Meetings will be scheduled at variable times and locations. Meeting announcements will be posted on the City’s Master Calendar at www.SantaBarbaraCA.gov/Calendar. Meeting agendas will be posted in advance on this web page. Interested persons can subscribe at MySB in order to receive notification of upcoming meetings.
