Cleveland City Council to consider more liquor licenses

Posted

The Cleveland City Council will convene for its regularly scheduled meeting at 3 p.m. today at the Municipal Building, following its 1 p.m. work session.

During its 3 p.m. meeting, the council will hear public comments regarding five liquor license applications, as well as discuss two that were postponed for consideration on March 11, over concerns their locations would affect the health and safety of the community.

The two postponed applications were for Red Hot Liquors, to be located at 1708 Wildwood Ave., and Georgetown Wine & Spirits, to be located at Georgetown Road and Westside Drive.

During the city council's March 11 meeting, several city residents said the presence of a liquor store on Wildwood Avenue would interrupt progress made in the Blythe-Oldfield neighborhood, where they said transformation efforts made by local community development organization City Fields have had a positive effect on the community.

Councilman Bill Estes said during the March 11 meeting that research shows a direct correlation between liquor stores and violence. He said the location of the two liquor stores would be in areas he described as "hot spots" for potential criminal activities.

The two postponed licenses will be considered under unfinished business during the city council's 3 p.m. meeting.
