A stipulated license allows an applicant for a retailer, manufacturer or wholesaler license to operate during its 45-day public notice period and to begin operations prior to being issued a:
- New license;
- Transfer of a license to a new location; or
- A substantial change in operations.
In order to apply for a stipulated license, the applicant must submit a letter to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board requesting a stipulated license along with a letter of support from their affected Advisory Neighborhood Commission.
The cost of a stipulated license is $100.
A stipulated license expires when either a permanent license is issued or a protestant is granted standing at a roll call hearing.
