Downtown drinking is subject of Wednesday forum

By From page A3 | February 23, 2014

Davis Downtown invites representatives of local businesses and community members to a brown-bag lunch gathering Wednesday to explore the problems related to the over-consumption of alcohol and its impact on having a vibrant and exciting downtown.

Judith McBrine, a facilitator for Davis’ Neighborhood Court Program, will share her experiences with the restorative justice program and lead a dialogue about the impact of growing nightclub activities.

“We will discuss ways of reducing problems related to public drunkenness with concerningly high blood-alcohol levels, public urination, open containers and under-age drinking and hear thoughts about what we want our downtown to be as we continue to grow,” a news release said.

The meeting will run from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday in the conference room at River City Bank, 239 E St. downtown. Guests may bring a lunch or purchase one at any downtown eatery.
