A Conditional Use Permit/Zoning Permit allows a city or county to consider special uses which may be essential or desirable to a particular community, but which are not allowed as a matter of right within a zoning district, but rather through a public hearing process.
A conditional use permit can provide flexibility within a zoning ordinance. Another traditional purpose of the conditional use permit is to enable a municipality to control certain uses which could have detrimental effects on the community.
Find out from your local City or County Planning Department whether or not you need a conditional use permit (CUP) at the location where you plan to sell liquor.
There are some cases where a CUP may not be required, but these exceptions are rare. A location is possibly exempted from needing a CUP, only if the location has been licensed in the last one to six months with the same type of license (#41, 47, 48, 20 or 21) or (“grandfathered in”).
If a CUP is required for a specific location, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control will not issue a license for that location until a CUP has been issued. It is your responsibility to see if you need a CUP for your new location.
If you are not sure how to complete the CUP process or exemption request or need help in securing a favorable outcome of the local decision, feel free to contact us AT 818.345.2226.
