The City Council approved a medical marijuana ordinance on Dec. 16, 2013. This ordinance will allow one medical marijuana dispensary at an eligible location in San Leandro.
An eligible location:
- Has to be in an industrial and commercial zoning district
- Cannot be within 1,000 feet of a school, library, youth center, park and recreation facility or place of religious worship
- Cannot be within 500 feet of a residential zone

City staff is currently developing a Request for Proposal process to select a medical marijuana dispensary operator. They are also analyzing costs associated with oversight of the dispensary to establish the permit fee amount.
Recommendations and approval of these next steps will be presented in June 2014. Applications are not being accepted at this moment. If interested in receiving the RFP when released, please contact City Manager Chris Zapata at firstname.lastname@example.org.
