BACKGROUND INFORMATION FROM DDEL:
In 2011, the Colorado General Assembly passed a law that authorizes local jurisdictions to license designated areas where patrons over the age of twenty-one can drink alcoholic beverages in an enclosed common space, serviced by existing liquor-licensed establishments. Over the past 18 months, the Department has been seeking internal feedback from city agencies and public safety groups, as well as external feedback from citizens, business and tourism groups, industry members, and RNOs. This meeting will serve as an update on the work we’ve done and feedback we’ve received ahead of an ordinance request being submitted to City Council.
Liquor Common Consumption Areas can provide exciting new opportunities for Denver. Our goals in pursuing these opportunities and seeking feedback from the community have been as follows:
