Public Meeting: Portland Oregon Alcohol Impact Area

The Portland Building
2nd Floor Auditorium
1120 SW Fifth Avenue
 
The City of Portland will be petitioning the Oregon Liquor Control Commission to implement an Alcohol Impact Area (AIA) as allowed by OAR 845-005-0303. The purpose of the AIA is to address the chronic problem of street drinking in the downtown core.
 
A public meeting will be held to provide an opportunity for licensees and the public to comment on the language and to ask for an exclusion from the requirements of the Alcohol Impact Area. The proposed requirements limit the sale of high alcohol content beverages in large containers, and mandate education for store clerks on the responsible service of alcohol.
 
Testimony will be limited to 3-5 minutes per person. If you cannot attend the public meeting you may submit comments in writing by August 13th, 2010 at 5pm.
