Nevada County supervisors and the county’s marijuana community advisory group are scheduled to meet Tuesday, with both groups likely discussing the recent departure of an advisory panel member.

The Board of Supervisors meets at 9 a.m. at the Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City. The community advisory group meets from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Foothills Event Center, 400 Idaho Maryland Road, Grass Valley.

Supervisors are scheduled to vote on accepting a letter of resignation from advisory panelist Matthew Shapero, who’s moving from Nevada County to another job. His resignation is effective immediately. The county has posted a vacancy for the position online, and notes that any replacement should, like Shapero, represent an agricultural interest.

County staff on Tuesday intends to ask supervisors how they want to address the recent vacancy.

The community advisory group, now at 15 members, will meet a few hours after supervisors discuss the open spot.

The fourth meeting of the advisory panel will focus on the permitting process, and other requirements, for cultivating cannabis. The group in previous meetings has talked about what activities the county should allow at grows, as well as land use and zoning.

Public comment is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m.

The panel over the course of eight meetings will craft grow recommendations for a permanent cannabis cultivation ordinance. Supervisors have said they want a new grow ordinance in place by March.
