St. Charles may widen bar ban
ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) -- St. Charles already limits new taverns on historic North Main Street. Now, that ban could be widened to include more of the St. Louis area community's downtown.
The ban is part of the city council's effort to curb rowdiness. But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a group of 11 nearby property owners petitioned last week for the wider zoning change.
The city's liquor code for the past 12 years has limited new licenses in four blocks of North Main and one block of South Main to bar-restaurants meeting requirements for food sales.
The bars on North Main are popular gathering spots for patrons in their 20s.
