At the Special Meeting of the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors on Monday, April 19,  2021, Cannabis Cultivation and Cannabis Facilities Ordinances will be considered. Due to the  high level of public interest on these matters, it is anticipated that the Board may not have  sufficient time to hear from all speakers who sign up. Although the Board has scheduled a  special meeting for these two items, early indications are that there may be more people  wishing to speak on this item than there may be time available. 

Consistent with the Brown Act and the Rules of Procedure for the Mendocino County Board of  Supervisors, Board Chair Dan Gjerde anticipates that it may necessary to limit the total amount  of time for public comment. Due to the volume of public interest, speaking time may be  allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

Information and sign up for telecomment can be found here: telecomments. Because time for oral comments may be limited, the public is encouraged to  submit written comments in advance of the meeting by emailing the Board at through the Mendocino County online eComment platform at

“In recent years, county supervisors, county planning commissioners, and county staff have  deliberated in dozens of public meetings on the terms and conditions for permitting the  regulated portion of the cannabis industry in Mendocino County,” said Board Chair Dan Gjerde.  “Monday’s two public hearings are a continuation of these many years of deliberations.” 

For more information, please contact Clerk of the Board staff at (707) 463-4221.
