F’ville explores allowing alcohol outdoors

In keeping with their vision for a walkable downtown, the city of Fayetteville is considering amendments to the alcohol ordinances that would allow for outdoor consumption in approved areas with approved cups.

If the council so chooses, an Entertainment District would be created in a portion of the Downtown Main Street District and at Pinewood Forest where the public would be allowed to purchase alcohol from a licensed location in a city-approved container and drink it outside.

The container would typically be a clear plastic cup up to 16 oz. with a logo of Main Street Fayetteville or Pinewood Forest on it.

Council will revisit the amendments at their March 21 meeting.
