Lake County Hosting Revised Cannabis Ordinance Presentation and Workshops

The following is a press release issued by the County of Lake:

The Community Development Department is proposing an update to the Zoning Ordinance to add an Article 73 to Chapter 21 of the Lake Zoning Ordinance to address Commercial Cannabis permitting activities and enforcement. The department’s staff will be present to review and highlight proposed changes to the proposed Commercial Cannabis Ordinance as it relates to water use and recycling, tree removal, pesticides, peer review of required plans and reports, etc..

Please join us for this opportunity to provide input and feedback on the proposed Zoning Ordinance.


The County of Lake has previously adopted regulations related to Commercial Cannabis permitting and enforcement and has modified those regulations over time to clarify various procedures and expand certain cannabis activities.

It is the desire of the county to ensure that as Commercial Cannabis activities expand and grow in Lake County, the land use provisions regulating such activities are comprehensive and readily understood.


It is the County’s desire to amend the Lake County Zoning Ordinance to address all Commercial Cannabis permitting activities and enforcement as a newly established Article of the Zoning Ordinance.
