Santa Rosa, CA  –  February 8, 2017  –  The County of Sonoma and City of Santa Rosa will be holding a community meeting on Tuesday, February 21st, 2017, to provide an overview of cannabis tax ordinances from both jurisdictions. The meeting will be held from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Glaser Center, located at 547 Mendocino Avenue in Santa Rosa. The County and the City have been working over the past two years to developing ordinances and policies to create comprehensive regulatory schemes for the cannabis industry tailored to address local needs.

All residents are encouraged to provide comments and suggestions on the recommended policies for the Board of Supervisors and Santa Rosa City Council to take under consideration.
