Agenda Title:

  1. Council action is requested on the application received from Evansfield Distillery, LLC, for a Manufacturing, Distilling, Blending of Intoxicating Liquor, and Tavern Intoxicating Liquor and Sunday Sales License for Evansfield Distillery at 13621 E 42nd Terrace South.  This application requires a two-third majority vote for approval due to residential property being located within three hundred (300) feet of the establishment.

This application meets the requirements of the City’s Alcoholic Beverage Code.  

Evansfield Distillery, LLC is requesting Council approval to manufacture, distill and blend  intoxicating liquor, as well as serve intoxicating liquor by the drink seven days a week in their new distillery located at 13621 E 42nd Terrace South. 

The Corporation appointed Dennis Evans as Managing Officer for purposes of this liquor license.  The background investigation conducted by the Police Department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol on Mr. Evans and the members of the Corporation revealed they do not have any violations that would disqualify them from obtaining a liquor license from the City.

According to the attached zoning map, there is residentially zoned property within three hundred (300) feet of the proposed premises. There are no hospitals, churches or schools within three hundred (300) feet of the proposed premises.   Staff mailed a notice of the Public Hearing to the surrounding property owners and tenants within three hundred feet of the proposed premises on October 22, 2018.

Applicable City Departments reviewed the application and the attached Inspection Report includes their comments.
