Community Boards

The NYC Hospitality Alliance has been advocating for the standardization of the process to apply for and renew liquor licenses and sidewalk cafe permits across community boards. The expectations of applicants should be clearly defined, and community board specific policies should be provided. Community boards should also identify locations where late-night hours for nightlife establishments are appropriate in their respective districts and provide applicants with constructive guidance, so stakeholders’ time is not wasted.
