(Mountain View, Calif.)— The City of Mountain View is studying updates to the City Code to permit commercial cannabis activity. Specifically, the Council is interested in allowing and regulating retail uses. The proposal to update the code responds to the approval of Proposition 64 by California voters in 2016, which legalized adult-use cannabis in the State. Currently, both medicinal and adult-use commercial cannabis activities are illegal in Mountain View. The City is engaging the public to receive their feedback on commercial cannabis in Mountain View.
Members of the public, who live or work in Mountain View, will have two upcoming opportunities to give feedback to the City about cannabis regulations. An online survey at www.MountainView.gov/PotSurvey is now gathering feedback through the month of February. There will also be a public feedback forum on Thursday, February 15 at City Hall (500 Castro St., Council Chambers) from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
For more background information on the City’s cannabis planning efforts , visit www.MountainView.gov/PotPlanning or contact Clarissa Burke at (650) 903-6306. To take the survey, go to www.MountainView.gov/PotSurvey.
