Description: The New Mexico State Liquor Control Act of 1939 was amended to prohibited the sale of liquor within three hundred feet from a church or school. This provision had always been subject to waiver by the State Director of Alcoholic Beverages Control. Amended in 1978, this statute empowered county commissions or city councils to grant waivers. In early 1980, a waiver application was presented to the City Council of Albuquerque by La Placita Dining Rooms restaurant, which was located well within three hundred feet from San Felipe Church and close to the parochial school. After five months of active community opposition, hearings by the Old Town Liquor License Study Committee appointed by the Mayor, and a suit filed by the applicants, the City Council would vote on the waiver at July 28, 1980, meeting. The paper speaks to the events and outcome of this controversy.
