I just got her email and the meeting is tonight at 6PM in Kenton!
Bridgeton itself has no bars or taverns but you might go to areas that do - and those areas may have ones with "issues."
If you want to learn about the proposed liquor regulation changes - this is a meeting to attend.
As you know, the issues of community livability and public safety relating to bars and taverns have been a big priority of mine for legislative action. Even as we work to hold liquor licensees accountable with better laws, municipalities have an important role in enforcement and city ordinance. Pursuant to this role, the City of Portland's Office of Neighborhood Involvement is holding a public meeting to get input on changes to the Time, Place, and Manner (TPM) ordinance, which allows the city to regulate local liquor licensees.
What: Community members are invited to a public meeting to learn about the proposed changes to local regulations of liquor licensed establishments, ask questions and submit testimony or comments.
When: July 19th, 2011 at 6pm
Where: Kenton Fire Station
8105 N Brandon Ave
You can view the proposed changes via the Office of Neighborhood Involvement's website . If you are unable to attend the public meeting, you can also comment via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 22 at 5 PM.
Many of you have helped us work on laws fighting dangerous bars and taverns in the past, and I know that this issue affects many people in our community. I hope that you will also get involved in the City of Portland's efforts!
