SACRAMENTO — The City of Sacramento is now accepting applications for non-residential marijuana cultivation, city officials said.
The process is appointment-based, but the city says at least 80 applications have been submitted.
The city says in order to run a marijuana growing business, a conditional use permit (CUP) and a business operating permit is needed. A CUP is required to apply for a business operating permit.
Along with those permits come fees. For grow sites 5,000 square feet and below, the operation fee is $9,700. For sites up to 22,000 square feet, the fee is $28,910.
CUP fees range from $16,640 to $33,610, which the city says is dependent on the proposed grow site and what kind of review the project needs.
The city established a page on its website dedicated to information about marijuana cultivation.
