Wrote and sent this to city council and planning commission this evening:

To: Sonoma City Council, Sonoma Planning Commission and staff:

The Sonoma Valley Cannabis Group (SCVG) would like to extend its appreciation and thanks to the majorities of the city council and planning commission for supporting the outdoor cultivation of cannabis. This ordinance will provide a sensible option for medical cannabis patients who cannot afford the high costs of indoor cultivation, as well as help mitigate fire risk. Though some issues remain around this regulation, we feel they can be addressed in the coming months.

We would also like to remind that the issue of a local dispensary with delivery service remains at the forefront for many residents of Sonoma and its local environs. The Sonoma Valley Cannabis Group looks forward to the planning commission and city council moving forward on this subject in a timely manner.

On behalf of our 250 members and the greater Sonoma community, SVCG appreciates your sincere approach and good faith efforts and, as always, stands ready to assist and answer any questions you may have.
