Liquor license request denied

County board finds a lack of public need in Elkridge

April 18, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A couple seeking a liquor license for a business in Elkridge were denied their request based on a lack of public need, according to a ruling this week by the Howard County Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board.

The board decided that the proposed location, 6590B Old Waterloo Road in Lark Brown Village Center, is too close to an established store, Waterloo Liquors, which is a quarter-mile away. Five other liquor stores are within a three-mile radius, according to testimony.

Dipti and Neelesh Vaidya, who operate a convenience store in the shopping center, sought the liquor license to expand their business.
