The Community Development Agency saw a large increase in application submittals during this quarter, receiving 30 new applications in one month alone. Staff have prioritized cannabis core services (permit reviews, inspections, and outreach) in order to effectively manage this influx of applications.
Other highlights included:
- CDA staff have made significant progress collaborating with Humboldt State University on a draft equity grant assessment and program.
- The Treasurer/Tax Collector has continued public outreach and made significant progress this past quarter in tax collections.
- Staff received approval by the Board of Supervisors regarding several cannabis specific ordinance updates.
- Cannabis Compliance staff have continued to face challenges related to verifying unpermitted cannabis as the cultivation season has begun and the division has begun to receive public complaints.
