There could soon be changes coming to how you buy liquor in downtown Davenport. Specifically if you are buying carry-out liquor in an area from Marquette to Federal Streets, south of 6th Street.

The changes would limit the number of "carry-out" liquor store licenses given out, and would better define what a carry out store is.

Back in April, council members decided to place a moratorium on liquor licenses in the area, concerned about the possibility of too many in the Centennial Gateway Neighborhood.

That moratorium expires October first. So Wednesday night, council members gave preliminary approval to an ordinance that says there must be at least a quarter mile between carry out liquor stores that are not groceries or pharmacies.

Something many residents support. Frank Klipsch, with the Scott County Family Y, says, "When there has been carry out liquor in certain areas, it has really caused an additional issue that we have had to deal with. And we don't need any reasons for people not to want to come to downtown Davenport."

Aldermen will have to vote on this through two more cycles before it can be put on the city's books.
