If you are a small marijuana cultivator, without a county permit, please know there is still time to submit an application and have a permit approved in time for the 2020 cultivation season. The county is committing to small farmers that if you are applying for approval of 3,000 square feet or less, have a non-diversionary water source, and can submit a complete application, county staff can process the applications to decision in time for the 2020 cultivation season.

County staff are finding that for these types of "2.0" applications the total county application cost is less than the required initial deposit of $3,445.

Under the commercial cannabis land use county ordinance, applications submitted for pre-existing cultivation qualify at 50% of the cultivation area in existence between Jan. 1, 2006 and Dec. 31, 2015. No new applications for pre-existing cultivation will be accepted after Dec. 31, 2019.

Please contact the county Planning and Building Department at 707-445-7541 for assistance in preparing your application. County employees look forward to helping you through the permit process.
