ABC and Public Safety Committee

ANC1C has three Committees to help assess matters that are brought before the Commission. The ABC and Public Safety Committee has jurisdiction over matters such as alcoholic beverage control, policing, and fire and emergency services.  One of the key roles of the ABC and Public Safety Committee is to monitor the alcohol licenses that are in operation in Adams Morgan’s commercial district.  Matters that are currently under review by the Committee and  matters that were previously addressed by the Committee can be found by clicking here

If you would like ANC1C to consider a matter for which the ABC and Public Safety Committee has jurisdiction, please provide all relevant materials to the Chair of the ABC and Public Safety Committee at least three weeks prior to the date of the Committee meeting at which you would like the matter to be considered.  Any recommendations made by the ABC and Public Safety Committee with respect to your matter would typically then be scheduled for deliberation and voting by the full Commission at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the full Commission.

Wed Nov 11 @ 7:00PM -
ABC and Public Safety Committee

 Agenda for November 11 meeting:

Summary of October 14 meeting
No actions were taken at the October 14 meeting.

ANC 1C received notice of two off-premises liquor licensees, Harris Teeter (17th and Kalorama) and Argonne Market at 1629 Columbia Rd, that are up for renewal of their licenses. If anyone has concerns about those licensees, please let your commissioner or Commissioner Guthrie know your concerns. If nothing is heard, the renewals will not be protested.

ANC 1C was also contacted by the owner of Taqueria al Lado, which has applied for a new restaurant license in the space adjacent to Osteria al Volo. Commissioners anticipate coming to an agreement with the owner on terms for a Settlement Agreement, hopefully to be considered by the full ANC at the November meeting.
