As you might have seen from ANC 2B’s regular October meeting agenda that was sent out last week, the ANC will begin considering a series of alcohol license renewals during this Wednesday’s meeting. The Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) required all grocery stores and markets that have licenses to sell only beer and wine to apply for renewal by October 2nd, 2017. Due to the fact that ANC 2B contains several grocery store and market licenses, 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 this Wednesday. The list can be found below:
Please note that the list was created based on the renewal notices that the ANC has received on a rolling basis thus far. There will be time set aside for community members to raise any concerns regarding the establishments included in the above list during this Wednesday’s meeting.
As a reminder, the ANC’s regular October meeting will be this Wednesday, October 11th at 7:00 pm at the Brookings Institution, 1775 Massachusetts Avenue NW. A copy of the meeting agenda can be found here.
Additionally, more information on the 2017 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 on Wednesday!
