The Langdon Park Moratorium Zone (LPMZ) has been in effect since 2017.

The current moratorium:

  • Caps the number of nightclub licenses (CN/DN) and multipurpose facility licenses (CX/DX) at three (3).
  • Prohibits the issuance of new entertainment endorsements for restaurant and tavern licenses (CR and CT) that sell wine, beer, and spirits.

Exemptions

The LPMZ exempts hotel licenses (CH/DH).

Status

At the request of ANC5B, the ABC Board adopted the Langdon Park Moratorium Notice of Emergency Rulemaking on July 15, by a vote of 7-0. The emergency rulemaking extends the existing moratorium, which was scheduled to expire on July 27, 2020, for an additional 120 days in order to allow the Board to solicit comments from the public concerning the future of the Langdon Park Moratorium.
