Retail Cannabis Applicants
If you were recently notified by correspondence that you have been approved to advance to Phase 2 of the Evaluation and Initial Ranking, you are required to submit a certified check, cashier’s check, or money order made out to the City of Oxnard in the amount of $3,067.79.

Please mail your payment to: Jose Coyotl, Associate Planner, 214 S. C Street, Oxnard, 93030 or contact Mr. Coyotl at Jose.Coyotl@oxnard.org if you wish to make an appointment to submit payment.
If you withdrew your original (Phase 1) application and resubmitted your retail application, you are required to submit a separate and additional payment in the amount of $224.25 for HdL’s second review of your initial application. This payment should also be made via a separate certified check, cashier’s check, or money order made out to the City of Oxnard (i.e., submittal of two forms of payment). Receipt of this payment is also required in order to be considered a responsive Phase 2 submittal.

Within the “memo line” on the form of payments, applicants should identify the Oxnard property address for which payment is being made.

Payments should be mailed or an appointment made to submit the payments but payments must be received by the City by the stated deadline.

In 2019, the Oxnard City Council approved the manufacturing, testing and distribution of cannabis within the City. The process for issuing permits for these uses in the City is occurring right now. At the end of 2019, the City approved retail cannabis uses in the City, subject to a permitting process.
By early 2020, the City began accepting applications for retail cannabis dispensaries within Oxnard. The City is currently reviewing retail cannabis applications and is not taking new retail cannabis applications at this time.
