Editor’s note: After the story was published, we received a press release from Nevada County CDA. It reads:
As a follow up to the April 11th Board of Supervisors meeting regarding inquires on participating on the Community Advisory Group (CAG) application and the stakeholder process regarding the community process on cannabis, the application is available online.
The County received many inquiries on how to participate in the CAG and we worked as fast as possible after hours to get this available to the public today.
The application period will close May 2nd with MIG, the County’s facilitator playing a key role in the selection process.
More information on the CAG selection process will be presented to the Board on April 25th Board of Supervisors meeting.
The County is maintaining a website on the cannabis conversation:
The direct link to the application.
NEVADA CITY, Calif. April 18, 2017 – Without much fanfare or outreach, Nevada County published the application form for interested parties to become members of a community advisory group (CAG) created to provide recommendations to the BOS regarding a permanent cannabis ordinance.
District 1 Supervisor Heidi Hall posted on her Facebook page about the release of the application, thanking staff and the consultant, MIG, for producing the application so quickly.
With only a two-week window to apply to be part of the CAG, anyone interested and willing to attend all 8 scheduled meetings should not delay filling out the comprehensive application. (Click here to download)
