Agenda Title:

Council action is requested on the application received from Ron’s Roadhouse, LLC for an outdoor expansion of the licensed premises for Ron’s Roadhouse located at 10817 E. Truman Road of their Retailer of Intoxicating Liquor by Drink Licenses. This application requires a two-third majority vote for approval due to residential property being located within three hundred (300) feet of the establishment.

Ron’s Roadhouse, LLC currently holds a Retail of Intoxicating Liquor by the Drink License.  Mr. James R. Woolery, Managing Officer, submitted an application to expand the licensed premises of this establishment.  The outdoor expansion is for a 20’ x 30’ outdoor area located on the south side of the building with a 5 foot wrought iron fence surrounding the area.  Approval of the outdoor expansion of licensed premises application allows the establishment to serve alcoholic beverages in the confined outdoor smoking area in order to comply with the Clean Air Indoor Act of 2006.


According to the survey provided by the applicant, there are no hospitals, churches, or schools however, there are residential zoned properties within 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 June 6, 2017.


Applicable City departments reviewed the proposed outdoor expansion and their comments are attached.  The applicant completed the outdoor expansion before applying for a building permit or an outdoor expansion of the liquor license.  The Police Department recommends denial of this application to add an outdoor area to the licensed premises of Ron’s Roadhouse.  Please see the Staff Inspection report that identifies the Police Department’s justification for denial of this liquor license application.
