New rules proposed for alcohol sales in Greenville

Greenville – New rules for beer barns have surfaced in Greenville. The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended the new regulations Monday regarding local sales of beer and wine. Assistant City Manager John Adel said rules the which the City Council adopted last year do not address concerns over those stores which would sell beer and wine as their primary business. The proposed regulations added definitions for the businesses as beer and wine retails stores; those with a drive-through lane and those without. The rules dictate the length of the drive-through lanes and require the main entrances and exits to face either the side or rear of the buildings. The City Council is scheduled to consider final approval of the regulations when it meets Jan. 27.
