Liquor outlet approved

Port Alberni’s newest liquor store is one step closer to becoming a reality.

Port Alberni’s newest liquor store is one step closer to becoming a reality.

Port Alberni city council voted in favour of proceeding with a development permit application for a liquor store to be built on a vacant lot on lower Third Avenue, albeit with a slightly modified site plan.

The developer and city each hired a consultant to review the site plan for the lower Third Avenue location.

The city’s consultant suggested slightly modifying the parking area in order to accommodate delivery trucks turning into the lot.

The change alleviates concerns Coun. Cindy Solda expressed about trucks turning, she said.

“You can see the trucks come in at a different angle now,” Solda said. “This isn’t perfect but I’ll support it.”

Council voted to table the application a second time at their meeting on Oct. 28.
