Commercial Cannabis Application Information

The City of Union City started the process this past Summer of studying local control over commercial cannabis in response to the passage of Proposition 64 and Senate Bill 94. The City went into contract on June 27, 2017 with HdL Companies to guide and facilitate city staff and the City Council through this complex public policy process.
