Let Provo Citizens Decide
Brewpubs impact all of us - so we all should have a say.
In a narrow 4-3 vote the City Council recently zoned shopping centers and the heart of downtown to allow Brewpubs. They then created licensing for brewpubs.
Several citizens believe this kind of decision needs to go to the public for a vote so we created a referendum, which puts the implementation of the licensing on hold. If we are able to gain enough signatures it will let Provo citizens decide on whether to allow licensing for brewpubs.
Brewpubs cannot happen without licensing!
We would not spend the money and effort if we did not believe this decision was important to our community standard, health, safety, environment and cost to tax payers.
Please join us in putting this decision on the ballot in November by signing this referendum.
Why we are concerned.
Environment & Infrastructure
Brewpubs waste 70% of the water they use – and this waste that runs into our sewer system is 4 times more potent than residential waste.
Utility fees will increase dramatically over the next 2 years. without brewpubs. It is not fair for citizens to also subsidize brewpub waste water even on a small scale.
Health and Safety
Alcohol is a drug – Brewpubs make it more enticing & increases its use.
Societal costs avg $807 per citizen or roughly $2.05 per drink.
Provo is known for its current standards – approving brewpubs will make us known for beer.
We should be proud to keep Provo unique
