Pittsburg To Allow Cannabis Retail And Other Uses In Four Zones

Pittsburg to allow cannabis retail and other uses in four zones

A limited number of cannabis dispensaries and cultivation businesses can now set up shop in Pittsburg.

The City Council this week amended its rules to allow a broader range of cannabis businesses —  including retail, cultivation and microbusinesses — but also has added a protection for churches, making sure they are at least 600 feet away from such establishments.

The ordinance, which specifies areas where cannabis businesses can locate, also requires a four-fifths’ vote to increase the number of cannabis businesses permitted or expand the locations where they can operate.

Staff anticipates each retail cannabis business would generate between $550,000 and $650,000 annually in combined cannabis business taxes, sales tax, and Measure M sales tax, Jordan Davis, director of community and economic development, said. He also estimated each cultivation, manufacturing, and/or distribution business would generate over $100,000 annually.
