Grand County places moratorium on marijuana licenses

On Dec. 13 the BOCC (Board of County Commissioners) passed an ordinance placing a moratorium on new marijuana licenses. The moratorium will last for one year, but the BOCC hopes to iron out the details of reevaluating their application process before the yearlong hold is up. The ordinance contains language that allows the BOCC to extend the moratorium or shorten it through their discretion. The decision came after continued discussion from the BOCC from last week’s meeting, and more amendments to the language of the proposed ordinance. The moratorium will expire on Jan. 1, 2018.

The ordinance notice was posted in the Middle Park Times on Nov. 3.

This story will be updated when more details are available.
