At its Monday, April 10 meeting, the Carpinteria City Council will consider a moratorium on commercial marijuana activities as well as a ban on sale of Styrofoam products. City staff recommends that the council implement a temporary prohibition on commercial marijuana activities so that the city can study the potential effects of the new state law and enact appropriate local regulations in response. A Carpinteria ban on sales of polystyrene (Styrofoam) has been promoted by various area organizations, and the council will consider joining the other 19 municipalities in the state with such a ban. Carpinteria currently does not allow to-go foods to be packaged in polystyrene. Monday night’s meeting will also include a discussion of new fire codes, short-term vacation rental regulations, and a City Hall remodel project. The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Ave. A complete agenda with staff reports is available at
