Over at The Daily Page, Linda Falkenstein has look
at the agenda of the next ALRC meeting. It includes this:
One Barrel Brewing is asking for an increase in capacity from 65 to 80, which hinges on a reduction of the rules for available parking stalls.
What are those rules? The way I read it, there are laws on the books that, in practice, ensure that taverns have enough parking spaces for people who want to consume alcohol and get back in their cars and drive away. I thought that we are in the process of discouraging drunk driving and here it sounds like the law mandates more parking spaces for people who drink and drive.
One Barrel is in a walkable neighborhood so I should think that Herr Gentry could get an exemption.
