Adoption Process


Do not open a Commercial Cannabis business until you have the proper permits issued by the State of California and the City of Chico. 

Currently, the Chico City Council acted to approve Commercial Cannabis Businesses within the City of Chico.  The appropriate ordinances and resolutions include Ordinance - Commercial Cannabis Businesses, Ordinance - Cannabis Zoning, Resolution - Cannabis Businesses.  The City Council’s action takes effect October 16, 2020. 

The City Council also established Cannabis specific fees Resolution - Cannabis Fees.  However, on 12/8/2020, the City Council acted to reconsider the fees which may lead to change in the program.  As such, the application process is paused until more clarity is provided by the City Council.
