There are a few spots in Alpharetta where folks can wander and enjoy a brew without worry.
And that safe haven for drinkers could be expanding soon.
After inquiries from businesses and residents, Alpharetta is considering revising its ordinances and expanding the area where special provisions for the sale and consumption of alcohol are in place.
In simpler terms, Alpharetta’s open container areas could grow.
As part of the consideration process, Alpharetta is asking residents to attend a June 5 council meeting to share their thoughts, questions and concerns about the proposal. The meeting, held at city hall, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Folks can share their questions, thoughts and concerns on the matter in advance of the meeting by contacting Alpharetta’s city clerk, Coty Thigpen, at email@example.com or 678-297-6003.
Thigpen said in a statement that discussion on expanding the ordinance began by mailing a letter to all property owners within the area under consideration for the expansion.
Alpharetta’s open container ordinances for a section of the downtown area was originally adopted in 2011 and then revised in 2015.
The map below shows where open container is currently allowed — outlined in blue — and what areas the proposed expansion would include, outlined in red. For more information, click here.
