Hoboken City Council repeals 500 foot rule

This report comes courtesy of the Hudson County View:



The Hoboken City Council voted to repeal a controversial, decades old “500 foot rule” for bars and restaurants at last night’s meeting.

The 500 foot rule was adopted in 1966 to help regulate the locations of bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. The law requires establishments to be at a minimum of 500 feet from each other in order to receive a liquor license.
