KL3 Restaurant Liquor Licenses Waivers

City Ordinance F/S R-121, Enactment 115-1998 requires that the school board and/or recognized parent association of a school be consulted during the consideration of any distance waiver requests from the prohibition of alcoholic beverage sales within three hundred (300) feet of a church or school as set forth at §60-6B-10 NMSA 1978.

Albuquerque Public Schools shall oppose in all cases the granting of any waiver to a restaurant for the purpose of allowing the serving of alcoholic beverages within three hundred (300) feet of a school site in which instruction of students normally takes place. The granting of such a waiver would increase the risk to students and staff of encountering intoxicated persons who may potentially interfere with or negatively impact the instructional process; and, would increase the danger of vehicular accidents within the walk zones surrounding the school.
