  • Providing for a greater diversity of areas where cannabis cultivation will be allowed to expand or occur
  • Developing performance standards for controlling odor impacts from cultivation
  • Special requirements/limitations for projects located within spheres of influence or community areas

More detail about the policies being reviewed at the hearings is on the county’s website.
