Notice of Public Hearing for Consideration of Proposed Ordinance Various Sections of the Ukiah City Code to Amend the Use Permit Application Process and Operational Standards for Cannabis Related Businesses


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Ukiah City Council will consider the proposed Ordinance amending various sections of the Ukiah City Code to amend the use permit application process and operational standards for cannabis related businesses. The proposed amendments include consolidation of cannabis regulations into a single article in the Code – to the extent possible; update terminology, definitions, and permit types to mirror state code; reduce the annual permit renewal requirement to a one-time renewal one year after permit issuance; remove cannabis business-specific parking requirements and defer to existing commercial parking requirements; amend cannabis signage limitations and defer to standard commercial signage regulations; remove application information unnecessary for departmental review; expand administrative withdrawal authority to include all cannabis-related business types; allow adult use retail within the Neighborhood Commercial (CN) zoning district; and clarify confidentiality policy of Security plans.


PROJECT IMPACTS:  The proposed ordinance is focused on permit streamlining improvements, and therefore covered by the “common sense exemption” that applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA Guidelines Section 15061).


PUBLIC HEARING DATE/TIME:  Wednesday, July 20, 2022, at 6:15 p.m. or soon thereafter.


LOCATION: This meeting will take place virtually, and in-person at Council Chambers, City Hall, 300 Seminary Avenue, Ukiah. The meeting link, call-in number and access code will be included on the agenda posted to the City website, www.CityofUkiah.com/meetings/ and at the Civic Center Agenda Board no less than 72 hours prior to the meeting. 


WHAT WILL HAPPEN:  The City Council will hold a public hearing to consider all public testimony and consider introducing and a first reading of the proposed Ordinance; and adoption of the proposed Resolution. All interested parties may comment on the project. Pertinent documents are available for review online 72 hours prior to the hearing at http://www.cityofukiah.com/meetings/.
