Lynnwood City Council extends marijuana moratoriums

The Lynnwood City Council unanimously extended for six more months two current moratoriums on recreational and medical marijuana at its Monday night meeting.

The moratoriums were set to expire on Dec. 24. The City Council enacted six-month moratoriums on the issuance of business and land use permits for recreational marijuana and medical marijuana in June.

The City Council also passed an ordinance that established interim zoning control over the location of marijuana operations in single-family and multi-family residential zones. The moratorium, which will last for up to six months, prohibits marijuana operations in residential zones.

A public hearing need not be held prior to enactment of interim controls, but is required within 60 days of such action.
