The City of Goleta will be holding a community workshop to seek input on how the City should regulate marijuana sales, manufacturing and distribution within City limits. The workshop will be held on Monday, August 21 from 6-7 p.m. in the Goleta City Council Chambers at 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117.  A short presentation will be made on existing state and local regulations followed by a discussion where the public may provide input and ask questions of staff.

Issues discussed will include whether marijuana sales should be allowed within local shopping areas, whether marijuana manufacturing and distribution should be allowed in the City, whether the City could require allowed businesses to obtain a license to operate, and whether the City should tax marijuana businesses. Feedback received at the workshop and thereafter will be incorporated into a staff report to be presented to the City Council at a public meeting in September.
