(a) The Density Cap shall be forty-five (45) permitted Tobacco Sales Establishments in a supervisorial district. The Department shall assess the Density Cap every two years to evaluate whether to recommend to the Board of Supervisors an amendment to this Article to change the number of permitted Establishments as reasonably necessary to advance the public health purposes this Article seeks to achieve. The City may not issue a new permit in any supervisorial district that is at or above the Density Cap at the time of submission of the Application.
(b) Pursuant to its authority under Section 19H.26 to adopt rules, the Department may adopt rules governing the approval process for application submitted in a supervisorial district where the number of permits has fallen below the cap, including rules on the timing for the approval process.
