Voters In Frisco Permits Latenight Alcohol Sales

Frisco voters conclusively approved a ballot measure that could lead to restaurants and bars being authorized to serve alcohol until 2 a.m.

The concept passed 58.92 percent to 41.08 percent in Collin County and 60.55 percent to 39.45 percent in Denton County.A total of 26,108 natives proceed to the polls, more than tripling the roughly 7,000 natives who voted on the same issue in 2006.

Chris Moss said “All the credit goes to the Frisco voters,” He is a spokesperson for Frisco 2 a.m. PAC, which formed in support of late-night alcohol sales. “They manifestly recognize the economic impact and that this will put all Frisco restaurants and bars on a level playing field with neighboring cities’’

Now that the proposal has transcended, the Frisco City Council is authorized to re-examine instituting late-night alcohol sales at a future City Council conference.

“Hopefully we will be celebrating later hours very soon.” Moss said, he is hopeful the case will be on the next Frisco City Council agenda. He mentioned that he believes the Council will submit the ordinance without much deliberation because of the voter turnout and support.

If the council submits the ordinance, businesses need to seek permit to be able to sell alcohol until 2 a.m. Currently restaurants and bars can distribute alcohol until midnight. They can serve alcohol every night except Saturday because they’re allowed to serve until 1 a.m.

Frisco natives who approved the late-night ordinance say it gives Frisco businesses to remain competitive with establishments in nearby cities that allow 2 a.m hours, expands the city’s tax base and helps retain developments such as the Dallas Cowboys and Wade Park to remain competitive in drawing restaurants and bars.

Those that are resistant of late-night hours say there is not sufficient proof to prove a significant economic effect from late-night hours. They also say Frisco does not have sufficient public transportation choices to provide people an alternative to drinking and driving and that it would reverse Frisco’s family-friendly culture.

In May 2008 voters, through an appeal and succeeding election, reversed a council order that allowed late-night alcohol sales. In the 2008 polls, Frisco natives voted 56.77 percent 43.23 percent against late-night alcohol sales.

 

Results are not yet final until canvassed.
