REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENT ON A REZONING & LIQUOR PRIMARY APPLICATION

WHAT IS THE REZONING (REZ00199) & LIQUOR PRIMARY APPLICATION  ABOUT?

An application has been received from Capital City Arcade Inc. to rezone the site to allow the use of an amusement arcade that is not within a mall, is larger than currently permitted, and has reduced restrictions on game content, business license annual fees and extended hours of operation.

A 50 seat Liquor Primary license in Unit ‘A’ (the arcade) is being applied for that would permit liquor to be sold and served in the games area Monday to Sunday 9:00 am to 1:00 am without restrictions on whether minors may be present.

HOW DO I GET MORE INFORMATION?
