A Special Occasion Permit is not required of club rooms or social centers that are provided by apartment complexes or multiple family housing projects for use by residents and their guests for parties, meetings or other social events as long as no more than a nominal fee is charged to cover additional or special janitorial services.  (In those instances the club rooms or social centers shall be considered a reasonable extension of the residents' private residences, and no Special Occasion Permit is required).  A club room or social center shall be considered a commercial establishment for which a Special Occasion Permit is required if the club room or social center:

(1)           is rented to nonresidents of the multiple family housing complex;

(2)           is rented to residents for a charge in excess of that reasonably calculated to cover additional or special janitorial services; or

(3)           holds a retail Malt Beverage, Unfortified Wine, Fortified Wine, or Mixed Beverages Permit.
