Liquor Licenses

The Town Clerk's Office manages Liquor License Applications for the Town of Parker.  Liquor License Applications require approval of both the Town of Parker and the State of Colorado, Department of Revenue, Liquor Enforcement Division.  Liquor Licenses are issued under the provisions of Chapter 5.02 of the Parker Municipal Code and Articles 46 through 48, Title 12, of the Colorado Revised Statutes.  More information regarding State requirements can be found on their website.

Application Process

New License Applications/Change of Location

The Application process is thorough and lengthier than that of other licenses.  Applicants should allow a minimum of 60-90 days to complete the process.  New applications are required to have a public hearing before the Town of Parker Special Licensing Authority.  Public hearings will be scheduled no sooner than 30 days from the date the application is deemed complete.

Renewal Applications

Renewal applications must be submitted to the Town Clerk on the appropriate forms no later than 45 days prior to the current license expiration date.  If the Town Clerk's Office deems the applications to be complete, no public hearing before the Special Licensing Authority is required unless the Clerk finds "Good Cause" for nonrenewal.

Special Events Permits

Special Events held by certain nonprofit groups require a Permit from the Town of Parker and the State of Colorado.  This is in addition to the Town of Parker Community Event Permit which may be required for certain events.  Please visit our Community Event Permit page for more details.  Applicants should allow 30-60 days to complete the process.  Special Events Permits applications are required to have a public hearing before the Town of Parker Licensing Authority.
