On Tuesday, January 3, 2017, the City of Oregon City will begin accepting business license applications for marijuana businesses in the City of Oregon City. Because of specific Oregon City zoning regulations, such as the restriction that a marijuana retailer shall not locate within 1,000 feet of another marijuana retailer, the approval of your business license could be impacted by the issuance of a competitor’s business license whose business license application was submitted before yours. Therefore, it’s important that you understand the following information so that you can secure your business location’s place in the sequential order in which the City will process and approve business license applications for marijuana businesses.
The regulations were adopted on October 19, 2016 pending the November 6 local vote which lifted the ban on marijuana businesses, and take effect on December 31, 2016.
The City will not accept LUCS forms or license applications until January 3rd, 2017.
