TITLE
Recommendation to declare ordinance imposing a moratorium relating to the establishment of certain bars or nightclubs with Type 48 ABC Licenses and related permits in the Downtown Dining and Entertainment District; declaring the urgency thereof and declaring that this ordinance shall take effect immediately, read and adopted as read. (Ordinance No. ORD-13-0016)  (District 2)
 
DISCUSSION
On August 13, 2013, the City Council adopted a minute order pursuant to an agenda request which initiated a moratorium against the issuance of entertainment permits in the Downtown Dining and Entertainment District ("District") for businesses that operate under a Type 48 ABC license (Bar and Lounge-no kitchen).  The moratorium was initiated pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 21.50 of the Municipal Code, "Interim Prohibition of Uses."
 
The Ordinance which has been prepared for Council's consideration establishes a one year moratorium period.  During this time, the City Manager, Development Services Department and the Planning Commission will undertake a study on the propriety of amending the City's zoning and/or business license regulations related to the above described use.  The one year moratorium will apply to any entertainment permit and/or business license application received by the City after August 13, 2013, for businesses operating in the District with a Type 48 ABC Permit.
 
SUGGESTED ACTION
Approve recommendation.
