PITTSBURG -- City officials are reviewing zoning regulations that apply to stand-alone bars that serve alcohol and whether any changes should be made.

In Pittsburg, there are two types of businesses that serve alcohol: full-service restaurants whose liquor license allows them to serve hard liquor; and stand-alone bars with minimal or no food service. To open, both types of businesses need to obtain a conditional use permit considered on a case-by-case basis by the Planning Commission.

To that end, city officials want to hear from residents to get their thoughts on stand-alone bars and whether changes should be made when it comes to zoning regulations.

To gather comments, the city has launched an online survey at http://svy.mk/1g3hWjc that runs through Sunday.

As part of its goals for 2014, the City Council is reviewing existing zoning regulations related to businesses that serve alcohol.

For questions or additional information about the survey, contact Kristin Pollot, project planner, at 925-252-6941 or kpollot@ci.pittsburg.ca.us
