With hundreds of liquor licenses set to expire at the end of the year, Portland wants citizens to help guide the renewal process.

Portland’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement is working with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission on renewals for about 1,200 of the city’s 2,400 liquor licenses held by businesses north of Burnside street. Each year, liquor licenses for businesses north of the street expire on Dec. 31. Licenses for businesses south of Burnside expire on July 1.

Theresa Marchetti, liquor license specialist with the city’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement, said the annual renewal process gives citizens a chance to have their say about businesses in their neighborhoods. The program will join the Portland Police Bureau to forward a joint recommendation to OLCC after Nov. 1, she said.
