47 West 20th, Jezalin's @ Limelight - application for a new liquor license

WHEREAS, Jezalin's at the Limelight, LLC ("Applicant") has notified Community Board Five of its intention to file an application for a new license to sell beer for retail off-premises consumption within the premises leased to Applicant on the ground floor of the Limelight Marketplace located at 47 West 20th Street (the "Premises"); and

WHEREAS, The Premises consists of 1,400 square feet of space on the ground floor; and

WHEREAS, Although the Premises is in CB5's moratorium area, and there are residents who continue to object to any new liquor licenses on 20th Street or 21st Street or 6th Avenue between 20th Street and 21st Street, the Premises falls within an exception to the moratorium prohibition since it contains less than 3,000 square feet and satisfies other requirements for the exception; and

WHEREAS, Sale of alcohol will be limited to gourmet beer only for consumption off-premises; and

WHEREAS, The hours of operation will be from 10am-10pm; and

WHEREAS, There was no community objection to this application; therefore be it
