Voting on revised by-laws: http://bit.ly/DraftByLaws-08-23-2015
We’ll have an update on the liquor license transfer at 1542 Light St. This transfer was previously denied by the BLLC but the new commissioners have agreed to a reconsideration request. A group of resident opposed to the transfer have prepared the following updated protest petition: http://bit.ly/1542Light-Transfer-Reconsideration-Protest
We covered the sale of C&R in July but the sale is still pending. Following several transfer hearing postponements by the buyers in July and August, the BLLC has rescheduled the transfer hearing to Sept 17, 2015 so they have time to consider new information they have received about the buyer’s operations in other cities. Here’s a summary of what the BLLC is reviewing: http://bit.ly/CnR-Buyers

We are also in need of new members on the Liquor Advisory Committee (LAC), as we recently lost 4 members to neighborhood defection. We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7pm. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate.
Please help us LIGHT UP SOUTH BALTIMORE! Improved street lighting is widely thought to be an effective means of preventing crime, second in importance only to increased police presence. Even if you don’t want to go forward with any of devices listed, it would be very beneficial if you would at a minimum put a regular bulb in your fixtures and TURN YOUR LIGHT ON. Please encourage your neighbors to do so also. It appears that only about 25% of stoop light fixtures actually have working bulbs in them. Please join efforts and help us launch the LIGHT UP SOUTH BALTIMORE CAMPAIGN!!!!
