Notice of Declaration of Emergency, Adoption of Moratorium, and of Public Hearing

Notice is hereby given that on October 6, 2013, the Long Beach City Council declared an emergency and adopted Ordinance No. 895, a six-month moratorium on all Cannabis (marijuana) related land uses. The City did this because several marijuana-related laws have been passed in Washington in the past several years, and the State is currently grappling with clarifying and consolidating rules and regulations regarding this matter. The moratorium was adopted for a 6-month period, and may be extended until such time the State provides clear direction upon which the City can act with confidence.
