Update at 11:00am Friday, 13 January 2012: The City of Boulder is aware that the US Attorney has sent out letters about federal enforcement action at wellness centers that are within 1,000 feet of a school. At this time the City of Boulder does not know what local businesses these letters were sent to or what definition of a "school" is applicable. The City of Boulder understands that the current moratorium would prohibit the city from taking change of location city license applications to move impacted businesses at this time. The City of Boulder will update this information as more details become available to us.
