Resolution for Membership Consideration

CPCA believes, as do many other civic groups, that DC residents should have a meaningful voice in the licensing and regulation of restaurants, bars, and taverns in their neighborhoods. It’s long been recognized in the DC Code that such establishments can have profound impact on “peace, order, quiet, litter, parking, vehicular and pedestrian safety, and property values.” Yet, new legislation introduced by Councilmember Jim Graham would significantly weaken the power of citizen organizations and local residents to affect the actions of the DC Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA).
