Sonoma County officials hope residents will respond by Monday to a survey of public feedback to help update a cannabis ordinance.

“Robust public feedback is essential for the success of this project,” said Crystal Acker, a county planner who is managing the ordinance update. “The survey will be instrumental in understanding the public’s goals and addressing potential tradeoffs.”

Results of the Cannabis Visioning Survey will be presented during a Sept. 28 board workshop to set goals for the process.

County staff will continue to work with the pubic through early 2022 to develop a draft ordinance framework, followed by an environmental impact report in early 2023.

Sometime after that, a draft ordinance would return to the planning commission and supervisors for any action.

More information about the process is available on the county’s website.
