In the wake of a court order, and on request, the County Executive Office is releasing the applications and scoresheets of the teams that competed for five out the six cannabis retail storefront dispensaries that will be allowed in unincorporated Santa Barbara County.
The applicants for dispensaries in Los Alamos, Santa Ynez, Isla Vista, Eastern Goleta Valley and the Carpinteria Valley may now obtain their own final scoresheets and the preliminary and final scoresheets for their competitors, plus copies of competitors’ applications (with proprietary financial and security information redacted), by emailing Brittany Heaton, the county’s top cannabis analyst, at [email protected]
Members of the public, Heaton said, may request the same information.
The applications and scoresheets for Orcutt will not be released yet, Heaton said. The county’s selection process for a cannabis dispensary there has been put on hold, pending the outcome of a lawsuit in Santa Barbara Superior Court.
Lawsuit for Orcutt Dispensary Site
The release of documents that had been kept under wraps for months was ordered by Superior Court Judge Colleen Sterne beginning June 11, in a lawsuit filed against the county by Natural Healing Center Orcutt 405.
