Lompoc Firework Sale Applications
LOMPOC, CA, Jan. 15, 2019 – Starting today, the Lompoc Fire Department begins accepting applications from qualified City of Lompoc based nonprofit groups to be entered into this year’s lottery for an opportunity to sell Safe and Sane fireworks.
Permits to sell Safe and Sane fireworks will be limited to six sale stands and locations in the City of Lompoc. Permits will be issued only to organized and established nonprofit organizations within City of Lompoc city limits meeting the definition and required criteria as outlined in City of Lompoc ordinances 1591(13) and 1594(13). The Lompoc Unified School District Education Foundation (LUSDEF), as long as it is a nonprofit organization, may apply for two permits to sell safe and sane fireworks within the city. The remaining four qualified nonprofit groups will be chosen by lottery.
Applications may be filed beginning Jan. 15, up to and including Feb. 1. Applicants will be notified by Feb. 15 of the disapproval of any lottery application. The lottery for determining which nonprofit organizations will receive firework sale permits is set to take place on or before March 1. All nonprofit organizations whose applications have been selected will have up to and including March 31 to submit all information required by Lompoc Municipal Code Section 8.28.060l.
Firework sale application packets are available at Lompoc Fire Station 1, 115 South G St., and must be picked up in-person by an adult representative of the nonprofit group Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Nonprofit groups other than LUSDEF which were granted a permit in 2018 are not typically eligible for the 2019 lottery, but can still apply. Last year’s nonprofit groups will be considered for an alternate position and entered into the lottery in the event there are fewer than six new applicants accepted and approved.
