The contest for a single permit to sell cannabis in a retail shop in the unincorporated county areas of Carpinteria and Summerland has neared completion of its penultimate round. Local Padaro Beach Village storefront owners, Patrick and Maire Radis, along with The Roots dispensary, have come out on top, and are now one step closer to achieving their goal to open a pot dispensary in the former Porch retail location.
As a result of the third of four phases in the merit-based selection process, Santa Barbara County’s Cannabis Program has released preliminary rankings for applicants by Community Plan Area (CPA). In the Toro Canyon/Summerland CPA, which includes Santa Claus Lane, two applicants were ranked. Ranked number one is The Roots Carpinteria, LLC for a store at 3823 Santa Claus Lane.
