City overturns church-booze buffer zones


An ordinance change approved by the City Council today will allow microbreweries to operate next door to a church.

A related ordinance change at the same meeting would also do away with laws limiting restaurants to only 30 percent of their sales to come from alcohol.

In both scenarios, city ordinance had required a 300-foot buffer zone between religious institutions and microbreweries and restaurants that serve over 30 percent alcohol.

Restaurants will still be required abide by the 60:40 ratio of food to beer.
