Title
Resolution to Recommend Approval of Issuance of a Downtown Development District Liquor License to La Taqueria Ann Arbor, LLC
Memorandum
The attached resolution will approve the recommendation of La Taqueria Ann Arbor, LLC to the MLCC for issuance of a downtown development district liquor license to be sited at 106 E. Liberty, Suite 120, in Ann Arbor.

The City Council of Ann Arbor adopted Resolution R-08-024 on February 4, 2008 establishing the Ann Arbor Downtown Development District as a development district for liquor licensing in accordance with the requirements of Public Act 501 (MCL 436.1521A(1)B of 2006 and the Michigan Liquor Control Commission ("MLCC"). To receive a Development District Liquor License an applicant must be approved by the City and the MLCC. An application for a license will not be authorized for investigation until the MLCC has received a City resolution which approves the applicant at a specific location "above all others."

La Taqueria Ann Arbor, LLC has submitted the City license application with all requested supplemental documentation to the City Clerk. The restaurant has been inspected by the City Service Units and its taxes are current. The Council Liquor License Review Committee has recommended approval with a 3-0 vote on July 20, 2018.

A determination that the applicant is approved "above all others" at the designed premises is recommended on the basis of the unique character of the restaurant and the services it offers to the downtown community and the general public.

If approved by City Council, the applicant will still be required to demonstrate to the MLCC that it meets all statutory licensing requirements to be issued a downtown development district liquor license.
