New ordinance at a glance

Posted: Tuesday, October 09, 2001

The proposed convenience store ordinance would:

* Increase the maximum allowable square footage from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet.

* Require a physical barrier and landscaping between the store and the nearest neighbor to buffer light and noise pollution.

* Restrict the maximum square footage dedicated to liquor sales to 50 percent of the total, which can be expanded with bonus provisions.

* Allows bonus provisions, such as more space, if amenities are added. Covered bicycle racks can add 500 square feet to a building. Transit-related improvements can bring 1,000 bonus square feet. Restricting the area used to sell alcohol to 1,500 square feet can result in 1,000 bonus square feet.
