Regulations for Marijuana Related Commercial Activity

Yolo County –> City of Davis

City Description

Davis is a city in the U.S. state of California and the most populous city in Yolo County. It had a population of 65,622 in 2010, not including the on-campus population of the University of California, Davis, which was over 9,400 (not including students’ families) in 2016. The city is a suburb of California’s capital, Sacramento.

In anticipation of potential voter approval of the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, at the November 1, 2016 meeting, City Council approved an interim moratorium on the establishment, creation or expansion of commercial cannabis uses, and outdoor cultivation of cannabis.  At the December 6, 2016 meeting, City Council extended the interim moratorium to July 4, 2017.

The intent in approving the interim moratorium was to allow for City staff to bring back sensible cannabis regulations for City Council consideration informed by stakeholder outreach.

ORDINANCE NO. 2492

SECTION 2. Moratorium. Except as provided in Section 3 and Section 4 of this Ordinance, the City Council hereby declares a moratorium on any and all commercial marijuana uses and outdoor marijuana cultivation within all zoning districts in the City. The City shall not approve or issue land use approvals or permits, including but not limited to zoning amendments, conditional use permits, variances, tentative subdivision or parcel maps, site plan approvals, design review approvals, and building permits or other applicable entitlements for the establishment or creation of commercial marijuana businesses, or modification of existing business for commercial marijuana uses, during this moratorium.

SECTION 3. Exemptions.

This moratorium does not apply to existing deliveries and delivery services of medical marijuana to qualified patients in the City, to the extent such services are validly operating in the City as of the date of adoption of this moratorium and do not constitute medical marijuana dispensaries currently prohibited by the Ordinance No. 2492 Davis Municipal Code. This moratorium also does not apply to existing and established laboratories for testing, which are permitted or conditionally permitted in districts zoned for research and light industrial uses, including Commercial-Service (C-S), Industrial Research (IR), Industrial (I), and similar planned development districts, provided that such testing facilities otherwise comply with the Davis Municipal Code and do not establish, create, or expand to commercial marijuana uses covered by this moratorium. Furthermore, this ordinance does not apply to nor seek to restrict in any way the rights granted to medical patients within this community under Proposition 215 and Senate Bill 420, which recognizes the rights of patients and caregivers to associate under the form of collectives or cooperatives, for their medical marijuana needs. These forms of association are not included in the definition of “commercial marijuana uses” found in Section 5 of this ordinance. This exemption does not modify the prohibition against medical marijuana dispensaries currently in effect under the Davis Municipal Code.
