West Dupont Liquor Liscense Moratorium Zone Working Group seeking feedback on Moratorium

During the January 2015 meeting of ANC 2B, a working group was appointed to analyze the impact of the West Dupont Moratorium Zone and offer recommendations to the ANC to potentially request an extension of the moratorium.

The Moratorium, established in 1994, limits the number of licenses for liquor stores, beer and wine convenience and grocery stores, special event spaces, taverns, and nightclubs. A full description of the moratorium zone, and a map of the impacted area, is located on the Alcohol Beverage Regulatory Administration website.

The working group, charged with representing community input, is eager to hear your thoughts and is holding two public meetings.

  • Saturday February 21st 2-4PM
  • Wednesday February 25th 7-9PM

Meetings will be held at the Church of the Pilgrims, 2201 P St NW. The meetings will be held in a community room. Please enter through the office door just to the right of the main front doors.

The working group is also accepting comments through an online form if you are unable to make the meetings. The form will be open until March 14th.

If you have any questions about the working group or moratorium please reach out to the working group chair Commissioner Daniel Warwick. We look forward to seeing you at our meetings.
