Redding, Calif.-- Retail cannabis sales and manufacturing are one step closer to becoming a reality in the City of Redding

The city council voted to adopt an official fee schedule for cannabis-related businesses at its regular meeting Tuesday.

That means the city will be accepting it's first round of applications for cannabis-related businesses this week.

“The 19th, we'll be accepting applications for everything that's non-retail,” planning manager Paul Hellman said. “And then on the 20th, 4-20 we will issue the request for proposals for retail.”

The annual licensing fee for businesses will be just under $28,000.

Application fees for retail stores are set at $6,000 and $5,000 for other types of businesses like cultivators and manufacturers.

If prospective business owners submit all their paperwork on day one, they could be in business as early as June.

Jamie Garzot is the owner of 530 Cannabis in the City of Shasta Lake.

She’s currently looking at two properties within Redding to expand her business.

“And then when we have that figured out, that gives us the address,” Garzot said. “And we can start the process of filling out our proposal and getting that to the city.”

Garzot anticipates submitting her proposal around mid-May.

She said she wants to make sure it's as complete and thorough as possible.

“And then it's just hurry up and wait,” she said. “And then hopefully we'll get a decision early July and hopefully we are chosen and then we can start building out the location from early July.”

Garzot said she knows several cultivators and retailers in the cannabis industry, and there's already a buzz surrounding sales in Redding.

“Regardless of who is ultimately selected and who goes into operation, I think it's going to be a benefit to the Redding community,” Garzot said. “And I look forward to possibly being part of that new business community.”

Redding city manager Barry Tippin said it all depends on how long folks take to build, but it's possible Redding could see its first retail store open as early as June.
