The proposed alcohol impact zone around the South Perry Business District will be a topic of discussion at Tuesday's East Central Neighborhood Council meeting. The meeting is held at East Central Community Center (500 S. Stone) at 6:45 p.m. on July 19.
Neighbors and members of the South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association are encouraged to participate and share their opinions at tomorrow's meeting.
One reason for applying for an alcohol impact zone now is that other neighborhoods (including the International District on East Sprague and Browne's Addition) are applying for the same listing. Alcohol impact zones limit the variety of single serving high alcohol beverages that can be sold from grocery stores and gas station, in an effort to limit public alcohol consumption and public intoxication.
