WHAT IS THE CITY'S ROLE IN LIQUOR LICENSING?

In the State of Colorado, according to state liquor code, obtaining a retail liquor license is a dual process beginning at the local level.

A dual process requires review and approval from the Local Licensing Authority first prior to review by the State Liquor Enforcement Division. The Local Licensing Authority conducts hearings and makes findings on whether to grant or deny a liquor license. Licenses are granted based upon demonstration that the surrounding neighborhood needs and desires the issuance of the license. Applicants unfamiliar with the detailed application process may wish to consult an attorney.

The City of Longmont Local Licensing Authority is Municipal Judge Diana VanDeHey. The Deputy City Clerk serves as the official secretary to the Local Licensing Authority and receives and processes all liquor license applications.

All liquor license applications, including renewals, should be filed with the City Clerk's Office at 350 Kimbark Street, Longmont, Colorado, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Local Licensing Authority meets once a month, usually on the third Friday, starting at 10:00 a.m. at the Safety and Justice Center in Courtroom A, located at 225 Kimbark Street, Longmont, Colorado.
