My Town Kalamazoo: Alcohol sales restrictions take effect

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—New restrictions on alcohol sales within the city of Kalamazoo are in effect.

Last month, city commissioners approved changes to the city ordinance, prohibiting off-premises alcohol sales within 500 feet of churches and school buildings.  The amendment would also limit businesses from selling off-premises within 2,640 feet of another competitor.

The Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services Department played a key role in the ordinance change, after conducting extensive research.  The agency found the highest concentrations of off-premises alcohol sales sites were in low-income, minority neighborhoods.
