The Frisco pubs, restaurants, clubs, and other locations selling alcoholic beverages have lower separation requirements to meet from now on in certain zones.
The City Council members voted for repealing the distance requirements in place for alcoholic drinks sale in specific districts. Traditionally selling alcohol was done at a distance from churches, public hospitals, child-care facilities, residential areas, and public or private schools.
In the last years 3 exceptions to the 800-feet distance rule have been approved, targeting to eliminate unnecessary steps for business owners.
For the first time during the last virtual meeting of the City Council on Feb. 2 the members voted to repeal the mandatory distance rules for certain zoning districts. The policy rollback is meant to express support for businesses and to promote straightforward deals for landowners.
While concern was expressed regarding inappropriate access by students to alcohol selling facilities, there were no statistics supporting this possibility.
