(2/10/2013, Los Alamitos) As requested by the City Council at their last regular meeting, Los Alamitos’ Planning Commission will revisit their decision to restrict liquor sales and operating hours at the proposed 7-11 on Ball Road.
7-11 originally applied to operate the 7-Eleven on a 24 hour basis and sell alcohol during the hours such sales are allowed in California (6 a.m. – 2 a.m.). The Planning Commission originally restricted the operating hours to 6 a.m. to midnight, with alcohol sales ending at 10 p.m. due to the property’s proximity to residences, among other things.
7-11 appealed to the City Council to allow a 5 a.m. opening and liquor sales from 6 am to midnight. Since the appeal was for different hours than the original 24 hour application, the Council remanded the matter back to the Planning Commission.
City staff is recommending adjusting to a 5 a.m. opening time but continuing to restrict alcohol sales to the hours between 6 am and 10 pm.

As always, your comments, perspective, and reporting if you attend the meeting are appreciated.
