Fort Bragg Moves Forward With Commercial Cultivation Ordinance
Fort Bragg city leaders voted to move forward with a plan to regulate commercial cannabis on Oct. 13.
Currently, the city allows adult use dispensaries and commercial manufacturing/processing of cannabis. The Public Safety Committee had previously recommended that the city regulate commercial cannabis cultivation as well. Plans to draft an ordinance began in 2018. They were delayed for a number of reasons, including environmental regulation challenges.
“Council directed staff to follow the Development Committee’s recommendations and begin the process of soliciting a Request for Proposals for professional services to prepare a commercial cannabis cultivation ordinance for the inland area of Fort Bragg,” the Fort Bragg Advocate-News reports. “A rough timeline states the council could adopt the ordinance as early as April of next year.”
