Earlier this week, Skagit County adopted a Moratorium on Recreational and Medical Marijuana Facilities in certain zoning districts. The Interim Ordinance enacting the moratorium can be found here.
The Moratorium prohibits marijuana production and processing facilities in a number of the County’s Rural and Residential zones. It also sets forth a new setback requirement whereby marijuana facilities cannot be located within 250 feet of any parcel, which is not owned by the marijuana facility operator.
A public hearing on the Moratorium will be held on January 6 at 8:30 a.m.
