Tools

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) — The city of Decatur is considering whether to become the home of a new arts and entertainment district.

Council members are set to vote on the proposal, which includes a provision to let people carry alcoholic beverages on some streets.

Tina Hall operates The Brick Deli and Tavern in Decatur, and she thinks an entertainment district is a good idea. She thinks it will help the area.

But others aren't so sure. Joshlyne Springer of Florence says allowing alcohol outside of businesses could create less of a family feel in Decatur.

WAAY-TV (http://bit.ly/1182gWV ) reports that council members are scheduled to consider the idea at a meeting Monday night.

The proposal would include some restrictions, including types of containers that are allowed outside and specific boundaries for the proposed district.
