Hearing wedding bells? Not if you’re on agricultural land in San Luis Obispo County.
Some of the county’s economic sectors, such as the wedding industry and nonprofits, could receive a lethal blow as officials examine new legislation that would heavily regulate commercial events.
The county is considering adopting an events ordinance that would nearly eliminate non-agriculture-related events on agricultural land – with a few caveats. The new rules could mean trouble for landowners, foundations and wedding-dependent photographers, caterers, florists, entertainment, planners, salons and rental agencies.
