      Section: 33:1-12.50: Special retail consumption, distribution licensing in qualifying development projects.

          
1. a. The Director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control may issue special retail consumption licenses to one or more individual corporations or other types of legal entities operating a hotel, restaurant or bar on any premises located in a qualifying development project, as defined in subsection g. of this section. The number of such special retail consumption licenses that may be issued in a specific qualifying development project shall be calculated by dividing the total square footage of improvements within the qualifying development project by 50,000, not to exceed three licenses. The director, as the issuing authority, is authorized to issue, transfer, and renew such special retail consumption licenses. Except as otherwise provided by this act, each special retail consumption license shall be governed by the provisions of R.S.33:1-12 with respect to plenary retail consumption licenses.

b. The director may issue a special retail distribution license to one or more individual corporations or other types of legal entities operating a retail business on any premises located in a qualifying development project, as defined in subsection g. of this section. The number of such special retail distribution licenses that may be issued in a given qualifying development project shall be calculated by dividing the total square footage of improvements within the qualifying development project by 100,000, not to exceed two licenses. The director, as the issuing authority, is authorized to issue, transfer, and renew such special retail distribution licenses. Except as otherwise provided by this act, each special retail distribution license shall be governed by the provisions of R.S.33:1-12 with respect to plenary retail distribution licenses.

c. The special retail consumption or special retail distribution licenses shall be subject to all the provisions of Title 33 of the Revised Statutes, rules and regulations promulgated by the director and municipal ordinances.

d. A person who would fail to qualify as a licensee under Title 33 of the Revised Statutes shall not be permitted to operate a licensed premises holding a special license under this act.

e. Application for each special license shall be made to the director. Every applicant, at the expense of the applicant, shall retain an economist or similar expert, approved by the director, to determine the appropriate initial issuance fee for the special license. The economist or expert shall base this determination upon the average sales price for plenary retail consumption licenses or distribution licenses, depending on the license sought, recently sold within the county and within five miles of the premises in the qualifying development project where the license is being issued, reduced by the fair market value of the limitation on transferability, as set forth in subsection f. of this section. One-half of the initial issuance fee shall be allocated to the director and one-half shall be allocated to the municipality in which the licensed premises is located. The annual renewal fee shall be $2,500.

f. No license issued pursuant to this section shall be transferred to any premises other than a premises located within the same qualifying development project.

g. As used in this act, a "qualifying development project" means a real estate development project that:

(1) is located in a municipality which has a population of fewer than 1,000 residents; and

(2) is in an area subject to a redevelopment plan adopted by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission pursuant to section 20 of P.L.1968, c.404 (C.13:17-21).
