Notable changes to Concord’s cannabis regulations, including allowing up to two adult-use retail storefront businesses and two locally-based adult-use delivery businesses, will be considered Tuesday night by the Concord City Council.
Proposed changes to the city’s cannabis regulations — first created in 2005 pertaining to medical marijuana — would also allow:
- Up to five cannabis manufacturing licenses (up from two)
- Two “microbusiness” licenses for operators whose businesses do cannabis cultivation, distribution, manufacturing and retail (at least three of those operations)
- No limit on the number of cannabis testing labs
Proposed areas where such businesses would be allowed include:
- The North Concord area north of Arnold Industrial Way and west of Port Chicago Highway
- A small light-industrial area immediately east of Buchanan Field
- A small light-industrial area surrounded by Interstate Highway 680, state Highway 242 and Willow Pass Road
- A small light-industrial area south of Monument Boulevard near Costco
A city staff report also says Concord could consider placing a cannabis tax revenue measure before local voters in the future.
The Concord City Council meeting begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 1950 Parkside Drive.
