2023 ‘Type 20’ Moratorium Figures

On January 1, 1998, Section 23817.5 was amended to permanently establish a moratorium on the issuance of off-sale beer and wine licenses (Type 20) in cities and counties where the ratio of Type 20 licenses exceed one for each 2,500 inhabitants.

2023 Moratorium Figures – Section 23817.5 B & P Code

In the city and county of San Francisco, the ratio has been established as one for each 1,250 inhabitants. The San Francisco computation combines off-sale beer and wine licenses with off-sale general licenses for the purpose of establishing the ratio.

Enclosed are the following lists and a map showing the new Type 20 license limitation data:

Please note that there have been changes in moratorium counties compared to the 2016 list. There have also been changes in some of the cities within the non-moratorium counties. These changes are detailed in the Summary of Changes to Moratorium Counties/Cities.

The new moratorium lists are effective as of January 1, 2023 and will be in effect until recalculated in approximately five years, in accordance with Section 23817.9.

The enclosed lists and map may be distributed to all interested parties.
