              Marijuana Production and Processing Moratorium

San Juan County has a moratorium on the siting of licensed marijuana production and processing. The resolution adopting this moratorium is found here

The moratorium applies to new or pending applications for a building or occupancy permit, variance, conditional use permit, or other development permit or approval with respect to licensed marijuana production and processing.  Resolution No. 15-2019 placed a six-month moratorium on such operations.  This moratorium was renewed for six months beginning on October 2, 2019 in Resolution No. 34-2019.  It exempts building permits for the alteration of marijuana production and processing operations legally established prior to the adoption of Resolution No. 15-2019, provided that there is no enlargement or intensification of the permitted processing or production.
