Amending Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 10-212, Distance from churches and schools, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter which removes the church and school consent requirement, in accordance with best practices.


NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
This ordinance will amend Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 10-212, Distance from churches and schools, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter which removes the church and school consent requirement, in accordance with best practices. Jim Ready, Regulated Industries, provided a presentation to this ordinance. This ordinance will bring the city into compliance with lawful practices with respect to how a proposed retail sales-by-drink liquor licensed business is regulated with respect to distances from churches and schools. The City legally cannot allow the managing authority of a church or school to solely decide whether a liquor license will be issued based on the distance from a church or school. For the past nine years multiple liquor licenses have been issued to retail sales-by-drink businesses that were within 100, 200 and 300 feet of a church or school because the managing authority from the church or school submitted a written and notarized statement to the director stating they had no objection to the premise obtaining a liquor license. The City must decide what the proper distance from a church or school will be with regard to the location from a retail liquor licensed business so as to not discourage or disallow development while still protecting any nearby churches or schools. The City recognizes that, when applicable, an applicant for a retail sales-by-drink license must meet the consent requirement which means they would have to get the majority of the eligible consenters to agree to issue a liquor license. A digital copy of this presentation can be found in the City Clerk’s Office.
