Humboldt Co. B.O.S. discuss outdoor marijuana ordinance Featured

Written by 

On March 5, 2013 county staff presented, to the Humboldt County Board of supervisors, a draft for a proposed county ordinance that would regulate the outdoor cultivation of medical marijuana. Click here for the KMUD News web post on that meeting and here for a pdf version of the March 5 draft document. After hearing the presentation, the Board recommended public input be solicited on the draft proposal, and that was done in April by holding several public meetings.

The input from those meetings was reported back to the BOS on May 7, and at that time the Board voted to refer the proposal back to the Medical Marijuana Subcommittee to be reviewed and revised in two separate parts: Neighborhood Impacts and Environmental Impacts. The subcommittee worked with staff to develop a draft that would, "...curtail the neighborhood-level impacts of outdoor cultivation of medical marijuana.", according to a report delivered to the BOS on Tues., Oct. 22, 2013, by County Administrative Officer Phillip Smith-Hanes. The resulting draft proposal titled, Update on Potential Ordinance Regulating Neighborhood Impacts of Outdoor Marijuana Cultivation futher states that, "The Subcommittee selected an approach of amending the County's zoning ordinance to define outdoor cultivation as a nuisance on small properties unless specified requirements are met."
