After a debate on where to put an entertainment district in Homewood, the City of Homewood has finally approved, with a 10-0 vote, one on the west side of town.

You may be wondering what exactly is an entertainment district? Well, it’s a designated area that allows people to take drinks off the premises in a certain area and during certain times from businesses with alcohol licenses.

“Tonight the City Council approved the West Homewood Entertainment District, giving this wonderful community more opportunity for growth and gathering. This is very exciting for the future of West Homewood.”

Patrick McClusky, Mayor, City of Homewood

An entertainment district is a way to encourage more people to come out and eat and drink at local restaurants. So, hopefully, there’s a boom for the local businesses!

“It’s good for our business district and allows for growth for our restaurants. It will increase community and make an already great destination better.”

Carlos Alemán, Councilor, Homewood City Council District 2
