Liquor License Renewals- North of Burnside Street Expire on December 6, 2012.

As part of the renewal process, the city of Portland reviews current licensees to determine whether to make a favorable or unfavorable recommendation to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC). Your role, along with the Neighborhood  and Business Associations is critical to the licensing process. If there are concerns, but neighbors do not wish to formally oppose the outlet renewal (liquor, grocery and convenience stores, bars, taverns, restaurants) may take advantage of this time to bring issues to the City’s attention so we can work with licensees to resolve specific problems informally.

Deadline for residents to provide input to the Office of Neighborhood Involvement is November 16th. Contact Theresa Marchetti at 503-823-3092 or
