Glover Park Moratorium Zone


The Glover Park Moratorium Zone (GPMZ) has been in effect, with some modifications, since 1999. The moratorium prohibits the issuance of any new on-premises retailer’s licenses, class CT, CN, CX, DN, DT, or DX, and restricts license holders from transferring its license to a location within the zone.


See map below.


The GPMZ exempts hotel licenses (CH/DH).


The existing moratorium expired on February 10, 2022. On February 11, 2022, the ABC Board received a resolution from Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 3B requesting a ninety (90) day extension of the expiring moratorium in order to inform and consult with the residents of Glover Park regarding the future of the moratorium. The resolution was adopted by ANC 3B at a duly noticed public meeting held on February 10, 2022, by a vote of four to zero (4-0). Again, the ABC Board adopted emergency rules extending the moratorium on June 8, 2022.
