Determination of severe weather event

Pursuant to Ordinance No. 3357 codified as LMC 7.30, Severe Weather Shelters, City
Manager Kurt Sacha has determined that a severe weather event is imminent based on
forecasted cold weather conditions beginning Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Low temperatures
in the Longview area are predicted to be below 35 degrees beginning tomorrow.
Among other things, the determination of a severe weather event enables permitted severe
weather shelters to begin operating. The following is the only permitted severe weather
shelter in Longview at this time:

• First Christian Church, 2000 E. Kessler Boulevard

City Manager Sacha has authorized Community Development Director/Building Official Ann
Rivers to issue temporary use permits for any buildings for which severe weather shelter
designation may be sought and which, upon inspection, are determined to meet basic building
safety standards for temporarily housing persons by Ms. Rivers and Fire Marshall Jon
Dunaway. There is no fee for a temporary use permit for a severe weather shelter, and a
permit may be valid for a period of 365 days.

For more information on permitted severe weather shelters, please contact the Community
Development Department at 360.442.5087.
