Open the public hearing.
Receive citizen input.
Close the public hearing.

The City Council has the option to:
1) Forward the application to the State with a recommendation for approval;
2) Forward the application to the State with a recommendation for denial based on the testimony received at the public hearing and/or other factors.
Executive Summary:
The liquor license process begins at the State level and applications are then forwarded to the respective municipality for posting of the property and holding a public hearing, after which the Council recommendation is forwarded back to the State. A Series 07 beer and wine bar license allows a beer and wine bar retailer to sell and serve beer and wine, primarily by individual portions, to be consumed on the premises and in the original container for consumption on or off the premises. A Series 07 license is a "quota" license available only through the Liquor License Lottery or for purchase on the open market. FlagTagAZ is an existing business in Flagstaff. If approved, it will be the 28th active series 07 license in Flagstaff.

The property has been posted as required, and the Police and Community Development divisions have reviewed the application with no concerns noted.  To view surrounding liquor licenses, please visit the Active Liquor Licenses Map.
Financial Impact:
There is no budgetary impact to the City of Flagstaff as this is a recommendation to the State.
Policy Impact:
Not applicable.
Connection to PBB Priorities/Objectives, Carbon Neutrality Plan & Regional Plan:
Liquor licenses are a regulatory action and there is no Council goal that applies.
Has There Been Previous Council Decision on This:

Key Considerations:
Because the application is for a new application, consideration may be given to both the applicant's personal qualifications as well as the location.

The deadline for issuing a recommendation on this application is January 6, 2023.
Community Benefits and Considerations:
This business will contribute to the tax base of the community. We are not aware of any other relevant considerations.
