NEW MEETUP TIME 1:30PM @ 501 Low Gap Road, Ukiah, CA 95482
We have just been made aware that the BoS will be hearing the cannabis items on the agenda after their lunch/Closed Session is complete on October 4. Lunch usually ends for them at 1:30, though they have indicated they may come back from Closed Session tomorrow after 2:30PM and expect nearly 4 hours of conversation on the cannabis items.
To make sure we do not miss the cannabis items in case the Board comes back early from Closed Session, we are requesting folks meet on October 4 at 501 Low Gap Road at 1:30PM.
In addition to the memos from Hannah Nelsonon on Appeals in Agenda Item 4h and the proposed Equity Program limitations in Agenda Item 4f, and the MCA memo in support of the Ad Hoc recommendations for Agenda Item 4g, we have one additional request.
Sometimes the Board will choose to combine what they feel are similar items into one Agenda Item at the meeting, which would then limit commenters to only 3 minutes of comment on multiple items instead of on each item. The complexity of these individual items requires focused discussion and the opportunity to consider detailed input on each one. In your outreach to the supervisors, or in PUBLIC EXPRESSION on Granicus, please make sure to comment that it’s important to keep the cannabis items separated to maximize the opportunity to more thoroughly discuss each item.
PLEASE make comment on all of these items. I’m seeing a handful of comments submitted digitally on Granicus, which is the County’s system for public commenting, but to make a real impression we’d like to see a lot more come through before 7AM tomorrow!
At 1:30 tomorrow at 501 Low Gap Road we will have signs to hand out to folks, and shirts that say ‘Protect Our Cannabis Heritage #WeAreStrongerTogether’ with the MCA logo on the back that we can all wear into the chambers to show solidarity. The shirts will be available on site for $20 to cover the cost of their production.
Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
