The Hanford City Council meets inside the Hanford Civic Auditorium.

HANFORD — The Hanford City Council meets today, May 21, to finalize some cannabis-related business, among other items.

On the agenda is the final approval of an ordinance that will amend the city’s municipal code to allow non-storefront retail cannabis dispensaries and microbusinesses in the industrial zone as a conditional use, and storefront retail dispensaries in the downtown zone as a conditional use.

The ordinance also amends the municipal code to allow both medical and adult use, aka recreational, commercial cannabis operations and provides a detailed description of distance requirements from cannabis facilities to residential and school areas.

Other items of general business to be discussed by Council include:

  • Awarding a contract for micro-surfacing treatment projects on city streets.
  • A resolution in support of Balanced Energy Solutions, which will provide the City with the decision-making authority and resources needed to achieve the State's climate goals.
  • Providing direction on joining the Tulare Kings Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

In a study session before the regular meeting, Council will discuss and give direction regarding Municipal Code land use issues.
