CAG Community Process
About the CAG
The cannabis regulation Community Advisory Group (CAG) was formed by the Board of Supervisors to advise the Board on the development of a permanent cannabis ordinance for Nevada County. The inclusive process took the input of all community stakeholders through public comments submitted to the CAG via email and during the meetings.
Nevada County contracted with MIG to be the consultant and facilitator for the process. MIG worked to create a fair and equitable process while the CAG worked to draft recommendations for a new cannabis ordinance.
MIG worked to:
- Ensure that the Advisory Group is formed in an inclusive and participatory way
- Facilitate the formation of the group
- Facilitate and document the groups work
- Serve as a liaison between the:
- Advisory group
- Board subcommittee
- County departments
CAG Meeting Schedule
The CAG met every two weeks from 1:30 or 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Foothill Events Center in Grass Valley. The met ten times over eight months, with two additional joint special meetings with the Board of Supervisors. The first CAG meeting was held in May 2017 and the last meeting in December. At the January 9th Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board voted to officially disolve the CAG, thanking the CAG participants for their input and time during the community process.
