From the MPLS. blog of the Star Tribune:
City mandated ratios of food to alcohol sales in restaurants could soon be eliminated under a proposed ordinance change that has been revived by several Minneapolis council members.
The city currently requires about 100 restaurants outside of downtown to make at least 60 percent of their revenue from food, which has only grown harder to meet as craft beers have become popular. It was intended to keep serious drinking out of the neighborhoods after repeal of the city's liquor patrol limits.

It has been a few months since we got the MAC to vote for partial implementation of the RNAV technology. Since this vote, many of us have been busy behind the scenes setting up a new community group and website to organize for the long term. This group, called MSP FairSkies Coalition, is comprised of neighbors from the area looking to better understand the issues facing us and while continuing to put pressure on those officials who can impact change.
Check us out at www.mspfairskies.org. Tell you friends.
