County Description

Alpine County, officially the County of Alpine, is a county located in the U.S. state of California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 1,175.[4] making it the least populous county in California. The county seat is the Census Designated Place of Markleeville.[5] There are no incorporated cities in the county. Alpine County is located in the Sierra Nevada, between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park.

The Alpine County Board of Supervisors finds that the prohibitions on marijuana cultivation, marijuana processing and marijuana dispensaries are necessary for the preservation and protection of the public health, safety, and welfare for the county and its community. The county’s prohibition of such activities is within the authority under state law.
