Information on ANC 2B Hearings for Fall 2016 Alcohol License Renewals

Hello neighbors,

As some of you might have seen from ANC 2B’s regular October meeting agenda that was sent out earlier today, the ANC will begin considering a series of alcohol license renewals during next Thursday’s meeting. The Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) required all tavern and nightclub license holders to apply for renewal by September 30th, 2016. Due to the fact that ANC 2B contains a large share of the city’s tavern and nightclub licenses, the ANC will set aside time during several upcoming regular meetings in order to consider the renewal of licenses.

The alcohol license renewal process is a critical time for the ANC to ensure that establishments are following the rules and being good neighbors. The process allows for the ANC to work with individual establishments to address any concerns from their neighbors. Community members are thus encouraged to attend the ANC’s meetings where renewals are being considered and to voice concerns about any individual establishments that are up for renewal.

I have created a list of the establishments whose license renewals will be considered during the ANC’s regular October meeting next week. The list can be found below:

ANC 2B License Renewals for October 2016 Meeting

Please note that the establishments included in the list are only the ones whose protest deadline has been set by the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board for before the ANC’s regular November meeting on November 9th, 2016. There will be time set aside for community members to raise any concerns regarding the establishments included in the above list during next week’s meeting.

As a reminder, the ANC’s regular October meeting will be next Thursday, October 13th at 7:00 pm at the Society of the Cincinnati at the Anderson House, 2118 Massachusetts Avenue NW. A copy of the meeting agenda can be found here.

Additionally, more information on the 2016 alcohol license renewal process can be found here.

Please let your single member district commissioner or I know if you have any questions about this matter. We look forward to seeing you next week!
