City Hall Update: Bars and churches, neighbors?

City amendment would allow churches, bars to be neighbors  

Do pews and pubs belong together?

A city committee says so, voting to do away with parts of an old ordinance that prohibits certain types of bars and microbreweries from encroaching on 300-foot buffer zones around churches.

Under current city law, a restaurant can’t open within 300 feet of a church if more than 30 percent of its gross sales come from alcohol. Also, microbreweries aren’t allowed to sell pints or growlers from their facility.
