FEATURED THIS WEEK
Progress on East Valley Parkway Widening
The bridge foundation has now been completed. If all goes as planned, the contractor will place all three sections of the precast bridge deck via crane this week. This milestone which has been months in the making will change the look of the bridge in a single day.
Congratulations to Our Art Center!
Recent state law regarding commercial cannabis/marijuana businesses enacted by voters with the passage of Proposition 64 (Adult Use of Marijuana Act) in 2016 is now effective with the start of the new year. The law requires commercial cannabis businesses to obtain both state and local licenses or permits prior to commencing retail, manufacturing or cultivation operations. While several local cities are considering establishing cannabis manufacturing or cultivation regulations, retail cannabis sales are only permitted in the City of San Diego. The City of Escondido already has an ordinance prohibiting all medical-related cannabis businesses. The City Council will consider an amendment to the Zoning Code in February to expand that prohibition to all cannabis-related businesses, including those authorized under Proposition 64.
