Davenport city leaders say they'd like to consider limiting liquor licenses to specific parts of town.

The idea came up after approving a license for a convenience store Wednesday night, March 13, 2013.

A business owner plans to convert a gas station into a convenience store, and applied for a liquor license.

But that sparked a heated debate about saturation.

The station sits on the same corner as two bars, and another convenience store that sells beer.

People who live in the neighborhood are split on whether adding another liquor license is a good thing.

Julie Collier, a neighborhood resident, is against.

"More prostitutes, more drug dealers, more drugs down in this area, it's not gonna help it, it's gonna make it worse."

Local resident, Jerry Nelson sees no problem with the issue.

"We need some more liquor stores around here, it's too far to walk and people in a wheel chair and all that, so as far as I care, put all the liquor stores around."

More liquor stores are possible thanks to a change made to Davenport's alcohol ordinance last year, but the city has decided to take another look at the ordinance before approving any more liquor license applications.
