This section is included in your selections.

A. The quotas for alcohol license shall be as set forth herein. Where a quota is not set forth in this chapter, the quotas established under the Act shall apply. Specified:

1. Off-Premises Beer Retailer: The total number of off-premises beer retailer licenses issued within the city shall not exceed that number determined by dividing the population of the city by one thousand (1,000). However, the city council shall have discretion to issue an off-premises beer retailer license without regard to the quota set forth above, if the licensee falls within the category of establishment where the total square footage devoted to the sale of grocery or related items exceeds ten thousand (10,000) square feet, total employees will exceed thirty-five (35), and the impact of the applicant upon the economy of the city is determined to be beneficial.

2. On-Premises Beer Retailer Tavern: On and after July 1, 1994, the city shall not issue any new on-premises beer retailer tavern licenses. The city may only renew existing on-premises beer retailer tavern licenses, permit a change of licensee at licensed premises existing as of July 1, 1994, and allow existing on-premises beer retailer tavern licensees to move to new locations if the license fees are paid and the new location meets the requirements of this chapter and other provisions of this code and the requirements of the Act. Any on-premises beer retailer tavern licensee or renewal whose license is revoked for whatever reason shall not be entitled to obtain a new on-premises beer retailer tavern license.

3. Bar Establishment: The total number of licenses issued within the city shall not exceed that number determined by dividing the population of the city by twenty thousand (20,000). This license may only be issued in a planned development zone that has been amended by the city council allowing a bar establishment in that zone and the approval was given after September 30, 2018.

4. Bar Establishment In A Hotel: The total number of licenses issued within the city shall not exceed that number determined by dividing the population of the city by twenty thousand (20,000).

5. Bar Establishment In A Retail Establishment: The total number of licenses issued within the city shall not exceed that number determined by dividing the population of the city by twenty thousand (20,000).

6. Bar Establishment In The Historic District Overlay Zone: The total number of licenses issued within the city shall not exceed that number determined by dividing the population of the city by twenty thousand (20,000).

7. On-Premises Beer Retailer/Non-Tavern Recreational Amenity Retailer: The total number of licenses issued within the city shall not exceed that number determined by dividing the population of the city by fifteen thousand (15,000).

B. State License No Effect: A license issued by the state for the sale of alcoholic beverages shall not affect the need for a separate license from the city. Holding one (1) type of license under this chapter shall have no effect on the applicability of regulations or quotas governing other types.

C. Population Determination: Population for determining the number of licenses shall be by the most recent U.S. decennial or special census or by any other population determination made by the United States government or the state. If the city council wishes to make more frequent determinations of population than what may be available from the above sources, it may do so based on such formula as it may reasonably consider to be accurate, and in such event, it may abandon that determination upon issuance of a new census figure by the United States or state if it believes the latter to be more accurate. (Ord. 2016-10-008, 10-27-2016; amd. Ord. 2019-01-005, 1-3-2019) (Ord. 2019-01-005 § 2, 2019; Ord. 2016-10-008, 2016.)
