THE LAND USE AND PRESERVATION COMMITTEE REPORT

 

PRESENTED DURING THE NOVEMBER 14, 2012 MONTHLY MEETING OF THE CLIFTON COMMUNITY COUNCIL BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 

HEITH RATLIFF, CO-CHAIR OF THE LUPC

 

 

1.  APOCALYPSE BREW WORKS OF 1612 MELLWOOD AVE. On October 31st, Apocalypse Brew Works advertised their application for a 2 AM Extended Hours License to serve alcohol. Attached is the response letter sent to Alcoholic Beverage Control. Except for some parking into residential areas issues and outdoor serving and noise, possible problems are of low probability in nature considering the establishment’s location and distance from residential homes. Despite the low probability, a letter was dispatched to the ABC responding with the Council’s position.

2. RESIGNATION EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2013 due to change in residency. Resignation tendered to President, John Beckman, by email on November 13, 2012.

Re: 2 AM Extended Hours Application – 1612 Mellwood Ave., Louisville, 40206

 

To Whom It May Concern:

We are writing in response to the granting of an extended 2 AM license to Apocalypse, LLP for a business doing business as Apocalypse located at 1612 Mellwood Avenue, Louisville, KY 40206.

The Clifton Community Council, representing the Clifton community where Apocalypse will be doing business, recommends that beer and liquor licenses for establishments serving beer and liquor be granted with business operating hours that allow the serving of beer and liquor inside or outside no later than 12 AM Sunday through Thursday, and no later than 2 AM inside on Friday and Saturday with outside service limited to ending at 12 AM on these days.

We make this recommendation as the business will be operating on a commercial corridor that has many residences located along the many side streets where patrons of Apocalypse will be parking.

We also make this recommendation mindful of the current practice that has most establishments within the Clifton neighborhood presently ending their serving hours at midnight, or earlier. Most neighbors feel this precedent represents a workable compromise between business and residential interests for the neighborhood.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.                                                                                              

Sincerely,

Heith Ratliff

Co-Chair of the Land Use & Preservation Committee, Clifton Community Council
