Meeting Date: 05/16/2023  
From: Stacy Fobar, Deputy City Clerk

Consideration and Action on Liquor License Application: Andrea Dahlman Lewkowitz, "The Bluffs of Flagstaff," 3100 E. Butler Avenue, Series 12 (restaurant), New License.
Hold the public hearing.

The City Council has the option to:
(1) Forward the application to the State with a recommendation for approval;
(2) Forward the application to the State with a recommendation for denial based on information from staff, the testimony received at the public hearing and/or other factors.
Executive Summary:
The liquor license process begins at the State level and applications are then forwarded to the respective municipality for posting at the property and holding a public hearing, after which the Council recommendation is forwarded back to the State. A Series 12 license allows the holder of a restaurant license to sell and serve spirituous liquor solely for consumption on the premises of an establishment which derives at least forty percent (40%) of its gross revenue from the sale of food. The Bluffs of Flagstaff is an existing business in Flagstaff and this will be the second restaurant license at the location since there are two separate restaurants; one for assisted living and one for independent living. If approved, it will be the 93rd series 12 license in Flagstaff. Series 12 licenses are non-quota licenses. To view surrounding liquor licenses, please refer to the online interactive Liquor License Map.

The property has been posted as required, and the Police and Community Development divisions have reviewed the application and provided their respective reports.
Financial Impact:
There is no budgetary impact to the City of Flagstaff as this is a recommendation to the State.
Policy Impact:
Not applicable.
Connection to PBB Priorities/Objectives, Carbon Neutrality Plan & Regional Plan:
Liquor licenses are a regulatory action and there is no Council goal that applies.
Has There Been Previous Council Decision on This:
Not applicable.
Key Considerations:

The deadline for issuing a recommendation on this application is May 19, 2023.
Community Benefits and Considerations:
This business will contribute to the tax base of the community.
