City Council members said they believe the potential conflict in mixed-use zoning between schools and businesses that want to sell alcohol will increase with the city’s growth. The City Council on Tuesday night put off until June 4 a council vote on an ordinance change that would remove the 300-foot buffer in mixed-use zoning between businesses that want to sell alcohol and schools and public hospitals.
The Fort Worth school district said Monday it agreed with the change for the Central Business District, but wants to retain case-by-case review in other mixed-use areas. Here's today's print story on the issue in the Star-Telegram.
“We need to continue to work with (school districts) on where they site schools, because this is going to be more of an issue,” Councilman Sal Espino said.
