Cannabis Retail Process



Tuesday, December 8, 2020: The following is a list of retail storefront applications that have successfully passed Phase I of the merit-based selection process review that consists of: 1) a CEO staff review of all timely submitted applications to determine completeness and 2) a preliminary zoning and permitting standards review conducted by Planning and Development staff. The applications stated on this list have been accepted for processing by the County and will advance to Phase II of the merit-based selection process, which includes a review of the Business Operations Proposal by a third-party evaluator, HdL, and the County's Business Licensing Team. Applicants that achieve an aggregate score of 85% or higher in Phase II will advance to Phase III, where applications will be reviewed, scored, and ranked based on the Neighborhood Compatibility Plan and site inspections.

Survey Results

Cannabis Retail Storefront Survey Results

The Cannabis Retail Storefront Survey Results and associated mapped survey responses solely reflects the responses submitted by members of the public and does not represent the County's position on location or criteria listed in the survey.


August 6, 2020 Update: Survey Image

Take Our Neighborhood Benefit & Compatibility Survey

The County of Santa Barbara hosted six virtual community meetings in July to receive feedback and answer questions about the amended Cannabis Business License (Chapter 50) regulating cannabis retail storefront licensing.

Before the Board of Supervisors meets on August 18, County staff is seeking additional feedback via a survey with an interactive map about what might constitute community benefit and compatibility for the Neighborhood Compatibility scoresheet. 

Chapter 50 (b) limits the number of storefront retail licenses to no more than one in each of six community plan areas. In June and July, County staff received hundreds of written responses about the business application criteria (not applicants or specific sites).

Note that CPAs are located in the unincorporated county and do not reflect zoning and permitting within the incorporated cities of Buellton, Carpinteria, Goleta, Guadalupe, Lompoc, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and Solvang.

To review the community meeting presentation and videos of each meeting, see below.

The public can continue to submit feedback using the survey link above or by sending questions or comments in writing via e-mail to  cannabisinfo@countyofsb.org, or leave a voice message at (805) 568-2777.
