Columbus Council Objects To Six Liquor License Renewals

Columbus City Council last night approved Department of Public Safety recommendations to object to the renewal of liquor licenses for six local carryouts. 

The department says A&B Market, Livingston Market and Convenient Plus Food Market on Livingston Avenue, a Whittier Street carryout, aFrebis Avenue carryout and a South High Street carryout are hubs for various criminal activities. But in a rare move, Council did not approve a simialr request for the XO Nightclub on East Long Street. No reason was given. 

Council also approved spending 1.5 million dollars to help build a parking garage on the Scioto Penisula. It will be part of a mixed-use development. 

Council also approved creating  a Downtown Redevelopment District to fund turing the historic Trolley Barn site on the Near East Side into a mixed-use development. The developer's attorney is former Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman.
