According to the agenda item released Tuesday for the March 15 City Council meeting, the city is looking to repeal its current moratorium to allow for sober living facilities to be established under the current designation of hospital-related use zoning. The new hospital-adjacent uses zoning, approved at the Jan. 19 council meeting, would require sober living facilities only be allowed to exist within the zone near the existing hospital.
The moratorium on the establishment of sober-living facilities was enacted July 7 and was amended to last a full year. The ongoing moratorium prevents the city from issuing necessary permits, according to the background in the city’s staff report. The meeting on March 15 begins at 6 p.m. at 100 Avenida Presidio in the Council Chambers.
