Approval Of Liquor Issue Clears Way For Entertainment District
City leaders in Upper Arlington say theyâ€™re ready to proceed a planned entertainment district now that voters have approved expanded liquor sales.
Voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved allowing alcohol sales in all parts of the 39-acre development on Lane Avenue. City council president Frank Ciotola says the district will include a hotel, apartments, additional restaurants, and office space.
â€œIt shoud add some more vitality to the area. And there are other parcels that might end up being developed a little bit at a time, but obviously this is going to be the big bulk of it.â€
Ciotola expects most of the work to be finished in about a year.
City leaders had feared that a possible â€œnoâ€ vote on the liquor issue would have outlawed liquor sales by long-time businesses in the area.
