City Rolls Out Dope on Applying to Sell Cannabis Comercially

The city of Santa Barbara has established an informational website to assist potential commercial cannabis businesses applicants in navigating the application process which opens on Feb. 1.

The site aims to inform the public about the city's permitting process. Potential applicants can also use the website as a portal to the application on PlanetBids.com.

The city website is at SantaBarbaraCA.gov/Cannabis.

The City Council, on Dec. 5, passed a land use measure that permitted zoning locations for retail and wholesale operators.

The council limited location of commercial cannabis businesses to within the Manufacturing Industrial (M-I) Zone in the city for storefront retail sales, retail delivery only,  manufacture, distribution, testing, and indoor cultivation.

The council also allowed storefront retail sales of cannabis to occur within  the Commercial General (C-G) Zone and Commercial Retail (C-R) Zone within the city.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
