Below is a Statement of Support to deny the request of the proposed liquor application for a 24 hour 7-11 Convenience Store at 2202 Alpine Boulevard in Alpine
The statements can be presented at the Alpine Community Planning Group meeting on July 26th at 6pm
**We can only stop the building of the 7-11 by stopping it from obtaining the liquor license. It will only come to town if it has its complete line of products which includes beer and wine. No beer and wine – no 7-11. That is why stopping the liquor license is so important to stop.
Statement of Support to DENY APPLICATION
As residents, community members and business owners in Alpine, we take pride in a safe, friendly, community-oriented neighborhood and we believe the proliferation of stores selling alcohol, jeopardizes the health, safety and welfare of our citizens, our youth and our community at large. We, the undersigned, are asking for your support in our efforts to protect our children and families and to preserve our quality of life in Alpine. Specifically, we request your serious consideration to deny the request of the proposed liquor application for a 24 hour 7-11 Convenience Store at 2202 Alpine Boulevard in Alpine. This proposed retail outlet is not compatible with neighborhood character. The proposed store is located near youth sensitive areas, residential areas, next door to a church and near other facilities serving young people. Please note, according to the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, Census tract 0212.05, where the proposed 7-11 would be located, indicates only (11) alcohol licenses are allowable, whereas this tract already has (24) existing total licenses. Two liquor stores selling wine, beer and distilled spirits are in the immediate area, including one located across the street from the proposed 7-11 store location. Other nearby businesses already sell similar goods and services. 7-11 does not provide a unique type of goods or services. Therefore this liquor license application is not needed for public convenience and necessity.
