City’s Next Steps


The City’s Planning and Preservation Committee has made a recommendation to permit Non-Storefront Retail Delivery in the City, as well as Microbusinesses with non-storefront retail delivery services.

If the City Council approves the recommendations by the Planning and Preservation Committee, then the changes will be included as part of the motion for the first reading of the proposed Commercial Cannabis Ordinance. Upon the ordinance’s second and final readings, the changes will be incorporated into the language of the Code Amendment for City Council review and approval.

Staff was also directed to confer with the Ad Hoc committee to develop the application process, forms, and fees. The adoption of the amended ordinance could be expected in July 2019.
