US (CA): Humboldt County supervisors OK indoor cultivation petition

On Tuesday, April 18, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors unanimously initiated a step in the direction of modifying the county’s cannabis land use ordinance to allow indoor cultivation within a business district in Southern Humboldt.

The board also directed county staff to evaluate business park zones to ascertain economic opportunities that could be capitalized on if the uses in the zones received additional flexibility, such as becoming zoned for mixed-use development. The vote accepted a petition to analyze the zoning code amendment, and a permanent change could be brought before the supervisors after additional review by county staff.

“With the decline of things that are going on around Southern Humboldt, this area is largely empty, a lot of empty buildings up there, a lot of standing empty buildings,” 2nd District Supervisor Michelle Bushnell said. “We could use some additional stuff going on in Southern Humboldt. I think that this zoning application change could open up something. It doesn’t have to be cannabis, but just open up some things.”
