HOW TO APPLY

In order to operate a delivery business in Sacramento, you need both a Conditional Use Permit for a brick-and-mortar location from the Planning Division (CUP); and a Business Operating Permit (BOP) from the Office of Cannabis Management. A CUP, or proof of application for a CUP, is required for applying for a BOP.

Step 1: Apply for a Conditional Use Permit

Download the Conditional Use Permit Application. A Neighborhood Responsibility Plan (NRP) Agreement is required for a distribution CUP application.

Applications must be submitted in person at the Planning Division, 300 Richards Blvd. 3rd Floor, Sacramento, CA 95811 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. (The office is open until 4 p.m. but applications are not accepted after 3 p.m.)

Step 2: Apply for a Business Operating Permit

Once you have submitted a complete application for a Conditional Use Permit, you will receive an application file number. Once you have this number, you can apply for a Business Operating Permit online or by downloading theBusiness Operating Permit Application and submitting it in person with the associated fees at Revenue Division, 915 I Street Rm 1201, Sacramento, CA 95814.  To pay for your application, please schedule an appointment here.

CEQA COMPLIANCE
