A community information meeting halted the forward momentum on a zoning application for a liquor store in Lake Highlands.
The application requests a change in zoning that would allow for a liquor store within the shopping center located at the corner of Markville Drive and Greenville Avenue, 12101 Greenville Ave.
Upward of a dozen neighbors shared their concerns with the zoning change during the meeting, including issues with the closeness of a private school and a special police focus on crime in that area.
Representative Rob Baldwin with Baldwin Associates, LLC, shared that he would speak with the applicants Norina Properties, LP to request a denial with prejudice at the case’s hearing Sept. 23.
“Rest assured I have no intention of moving forward with this given the opposition,” Baldwin said at the meeting.
Baldwin has since confirmed that this request will be made, Councilman Adam McGough shared in an online update.
Two additional neighborhood meetings are also taking place next week.
