The council unanimously approved Jackson’s request at its meeting Wednesday, March 24, two months after the elected body effectively denied his original request to rezone a section of the park as commercial alcoholic beverage 2, which is used for bars and lounges, and suggested Jackson instead pursue commercial alcoholic beverage 1 designation, which is primarily used by restaurants that serve alcohol.
