The City of Santa Ana would like your feedback on our initial concepts related to future alcohol and entertainment policies citywide.  Based on a series of previous discussions the following goals have been identified:

  • Make process for alcohol sales (CUP) faster, cheaper and simpler
  • Create consistent rules that create a level playing field and applied citywide
  • Eliminate confusing parts of rules and create certainty for applicants
  • Maintain public safety
  • Create policies that maintain a healthy balance of uses in the downtown and support an 18-hour environment
  • Support merchants that provide goods and services to family and youth
  • Create a permit that allows restaurants to offer dancing and entertainment
  • Reduce the restricted store size from 20,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet for stores
