Recommendation

That the City Council reviews and provides direction related to a proposed moratorium on certain businesses.

 

End

SUMMARY

 

In December 2018, the Council directed staff to consider a moratorium on various businesses including massage parlors, tobacco and vaping retail establishments, check cashing businesses, fast food restaurants, and alcohol establishments based on concerns that the City was experiencing an over concentration of such uses and the potential impacts those uses have on the long-term vision for the City.  Based on the background information, staff does not recommend such a moratorium for massage, tobacco, check cashing, and fast food restaurants as staff believes the existing regulatory framework can address any potential impacts these uses may cause.  With respect to alcohol establishments, staff is requesting additional clarification from Council as to next steps if such a moratorium is recommended.
