              Liquor Zones A, B, C, and D are hereby established, and comprise the area designated on the City of Woburn Zoning Map as the “Commerce Way Overlay District.”  The specific properties contained within each respective zone are as shown on the City of Woburn Assessors Maps, designated as follows:

A license issued under this paragraph, if revoked or no longer in use at the street address of original issuance shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights and privileges thereto, to the licensing board which may grant any such returned license to a new applicant consistent with the criteria set forth in this paragraph at the same street address provided that an applicant for said license files with said authority a letter in writing from the Department of Revenue indicating that said licensee is in good standing with said Department and that any and all applicable taxes have been paid.
