     Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:
     SECTION 1.  (a) Notwithstanding section 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Wayland may grant 1 additional license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages not to be drunk on the premises pursuant to section 15 of said chapter 138, to an establishment located within the town’s “Mixed-Use Overlay Zoning District,” as that district is defined by the town’s zoning map, as it existed as of May 3, 2006, upon approval of and under conditions set by the licensing authority of the town.      The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138 except said section 17.
     (b)  The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of a license granted pursuant to this act to any other person, partnership, corporation, limited liability company, organization or other entity for a period of 3 years from the date of original issuance and no license shall be transferred to a location outside of the town’s “Mixed-Use Overlay Zoning District”. A license granted pursuant to this act shall be clearly marked on its face “Mixed-Use Overlay Zoning District Only”. The licensing authority shall only approve a transfer of a license under this section to a new applicant if the applicant files a letter from the department of revenue and a letter from the department of unemployment assistance indicating that the license is in good standing with those departments and that all taxes, fees and contributions have been paid.
     (c)  If a license granted pursuant to this act is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use, it shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority and the licensing authority may then grant the license to a new applicant under the same conditions as specified in this act.
     (d)  If the license authorized in this act is granted to Eastbrook, Inc. to be exercised at 87 Andrew avenue, Eastbrook, Inc. shall surrender to the licensing authority the license it currently holds for the sale of wines and malt beverages not to be drunk on the premises at 87 Andrew avenue pursuant to section 15 of chapter 138 of the General Laws.
     SECTION 2.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
