When ABC denies a
request for a liquor license due to "Undue Concentration" (B&P
Section 23958), or if an application falls under the current moratorium
for on-sale retail licenses applications and off-sale license(s)
(B&P Section 23817.5, 23817.7 and 238 17.8) the applicant may appeal
the decision to the "local governing body" for a determination that
"public convenience or necessity would be served by issuance of an ABC
license (B&P Section 23958.4(b)(2)).
