Ord. 617 RE: Cannabis

Printer-friendly version

At last night's City Council meeting, the City Council voted 4-1 to introduce Ord. 617 as amended to allow cannabis-related businesses in some commercial districts in Brisbane.  These businesses include laboratory testing, warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, and delivery-only retail (walk-up retail establishments not allowed).  A Conditional Use Permit will be required for cannabis-related warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, and deliver-only retail, so the City can understand how the business works before a permit is issued.  Testing laboratories may require a Conditional Use Permit as well, depending on the districit they're located in within the city.

The Ordinance also establishes performance standards for the personal cultivation of medicinal and adult-use ("recreational") cannabis for personal consumption by eligible patients or adults 21 years or older on residential properties, consistent with State law requirements. No commercial cultivation of cannabis will be allowed in Brisbane.

The second reading of the ordinance is scheduled for the Council's September 7th meeting, with the ordinance taking effect in October (30 days after adoption). Businesses must wait until the ordinance is in effect to apply for a Conditional Use Permit.

Questions?  Contact the Community Development Department at (415) 508-2120 or email planning@ci.brisbane.ca.us.

Website Maintenance

Printer-friendly version

We want to apologize for the website being offline last weekend for one day and 14 hours.  We regularly add new pages to the website and during a period of re-indexing itself, the website went into maintenance mode and switched itself to "offline".  The City's current website is over 2,700 pages large, so city staff is in the process of removing older content such as a Day in the Park post from 2013 in order to take some load off of the website.  We are also improving the Search settings within the website and have added the ability to use Google's search mechanism if desired.  See below image:

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and disruption for the City’s website being offline for a period of time last weekend.  We feel confident that the actions made over the weekend to bring the site back, plus on-going efforts to “de-clutter” the site will all help to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
