County of Lake

Revised Cannabis Ordinance

Presentation and Workshops

[Downloadable flyer]

The Community Development Department is proposing an update to the
Zoning Ordinance to add an Article 73 to Chapter 21 of the Lake Zoning
Ordinance to address Commercial Cannabis permitting activities and
enforcement. The department’s staff will be present to review and
highlight proposed changes to the proposed Commercial Cannabis
Ordinance as it relates to water use and recycling, tree removal,
pesticides, peer review of required plans and reports, etc..

Please join us for this opportunity to provide input and feedback on the
proposed Zoning Ordinance.

Why:
The County of Lake has previously adopted regulations related to
Commercial Cannabis permitting and enforcement and has modified those
regulations over time to clarify various procedures and expand certain
cannabis activities.

It is the desire of the county to ensure that as Commercial Cannabis
activities expand and grow in Lake County, the land use provisions
regulating such activities are comprehensive and readily understood.

Who:
It is the County’s desire to amend the Lake County Zoning Ordinance to
address all Commercial Cannabis permitting activities and enforcement as a
newly established Article of the Zoning Ordinance.

Community Development Department (Planning, Code Enforcement, and
the Building & Safety Divisions) are hosting Commercial Cannabis
Workshops to review and highlight the proposed changes by adding Article
73 to Chapter 21 of the Zoning Ordinance.

workshops as follows:
