New Amenity Discussed At Conway City Council Meeting

If approved, people would be allowed to legally carry and drink alcohol in "Social Zones".

The Conway City Council held its first meeting of 2023.

A discussion was held addressing the possibility of bringing a new amenity to the city. If approved, people would be allowed to legally carry and drink alcohol in “Social Zones”.

Conway Police Chief Dale Longs said there are three factors that have to be properly laid out if the amenity is carried through.

One factor would be a map that clearly displays what streets alcohol would be allowed on. The second would be establishing hours of operation that permit the drinking times. The third is creating a clear 16-ounce cup that businesses downtown must require for people to hold their drinks in.

A formal presentation on the proposal for the city council is set to be reviewed at the next meeting scheduled for Tuesday, January 17th.
