That a letter be sent to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch advising that:

the application by Ceili’s Irish Pub (Richmond) Ltd., to amend their hours of liquor service from Monday through Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. and Friday through Sunday Noon to 2:00 a.m. to Monday through Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., be supported;

 

 

(2)

Council comments on the prescribed considerations are:

 

 

 

(a)

there is little potential for additional noise if the application is approved; and

 

 

 

(b)

the amendment would not pose a negative impact on the community based on the lack of comments received from the public;

 

 

(3)

Council comments on the view of residents were gathered as follows:

 

 

 

(a)

property owners and businesses within a 50 metre radius of the subject property were contacted by letter detailing the application and provided with instructions on how community concerns could be submitted; and

 

 

 

(b)

signage was posted at the subject property and three public notices were published in a local newspaper.  The signage and notice provided information on the application and instructions on how community comments or concerns could be submitted; and

 

 

(4)

based on the lack of negative responses from residents and businesses in the nearby area, save for one letter received, and the lack of responses received from the community through notifications, Council considers that the application is acceptable to a majority of residents.
