AN ACT to establish a demonstration program  authorizing  the  community
  board for community board district 12 in the city of New York to apply
  to the state liquor authority for the establishment of an up to 1 year
  moratorium  during  which  no licenses for sale of alcoholic beverages
  for on-premises consumption shall be issued to certain premises within
  certain areas of such district; and providing for the repeal  of  such
  provisions upon expiration thereof

increasingly  high  concentration  of  bars  located  within portions of
community board district 12, in the borough of Manhattan and city of New
York, an area north of 155th Street in such  borough,  and  the  rapidly
increasing  number  of  such establishments being located in portions of
such district that are near residential and other  non-commercial  areas
is  detrimental  to  the  quality of life of residents of that district.

damage and vandalism, reduced quality of life within the community,  and
created a shortage of parking for local residents.
  Therefore  the  legislature  determines  that  the  establishment of a
demonstration program authorizing  the  community  board  for  community
board  district  12 of the city of New York to petition the state liquor
authority to temporarily deny the issuance of new licenses for the  sale
of  alcoholic  beverages for on-premises consumption to certain premises
located in select areas that have a high and over concentration of simi-
