SONOMA: Supes to consider use permit for medical marijuana clinic
The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 27, will
hold a public hearing at 2:15 p.m. to consider a request by Creekside
Medical Organics for a use permit to open a level II medical marijuana
dispensary at the old Nicholson Turkey headquarters, 19445 Riverside Drive.
At the request of 1st District Supervisor Valerie Brown, the board agreed to
take direct jurisdiction over the request rather than have it proceed
through the conventional review process by the county's Permit and Resource
Approval of the use permit would allow the applicant, which currently runs a
similar facility in Santa Rosa, to proceed with plans for the clinic.
Last week the Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission voted to support
the application for a permit. That vote was only advisory, but it can
influence the decision by the Board of Supervisors.
