Community Board 3 Seeks Feedback on Liquor Licensing Policies

Community Board 3 is seeking feedback about proposed changes in its liquor licensing policies. On Wednesday evening, there will be a public hearing to discuss the proposals, which would impact so-called “resolution areas,” specific blocks in which the board tries to limit new liquor permits. A notice from CB3 explains:

We are specifically looking at whether applications for beer/wine licenses should be exempted from resolution area policy if the business is primarily a daytime business that will close by a yet-undefined early hour.

For the past year, CB3 has been working on new guidelines which are intended to address concerns that the board’s “State Liquor Authority” committee is inconsistent and arbitrary.  The meeting will be held at CB3’s office, 59 East 4th Street. It begins at 6:30 p.m.
