Liquor Licensing in the State of Colorado is a two-tiered process. 

 For most licensing matters, local approval must be obtained prior to final approval by the State Liquor Enforcement Division. 

Matters requiring a public hearing are decided by the Centennial Liquor Licensing Authority, while other matters of an administrative nature are handled by the City Clerk and staff.

Learn more about the procedures and access required forms.  Contact Christina Cooney, Licensing and Records Clerk, (303) 754-3371, regarding any liquor licensing questions.
