Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Wednesday she's long been frustrated by the city liquor board's dysfunction and is glad its commissioners are pledging reform. "It's frustrating for me, and has been, as a city elected official knowing that the liquor board's principal positions are patronage positions controlled by the state senators. Historically, they've answered very little to the City Council," Rawlings-Blake said after the city's Board of Estimates meeting. "Yet when people call because of a problem at a liquor store, they don't hold the senators or the state responsible.

A handful of Anne Arundel County liquor stores are taking advantage of new liquor laws in hopes of cashing in on beer drinkers' interest in craft brews. They've installed taps in their stores to dispense specialty beers into refillable glass jugs called growlers — a practice that was legalized in the county at the beginning of July. John Fisher, owner of Staples Corner Liquors in Gambrills, drove to Annapolis earlier this year to testify before state lawmakers in favor of the law allowing growlers in the city and county.

Some north Baltimore wine and liquor stores may have found a way around a proposed Baltimore City zoning change that could eventually ban them from the residential neighborhoods in which they are located. Several stores in the Hampden and Charles Village areas are seeking rezoning from residential to commercial, with the support of community leaders and their City Council representatives. Among the businesses seeking rezoning to C1 commercial status are JT's Market & Deli in Medfield, the Charles Village Schnapp Shop, the Wine Underground in Hoes Heights, and Roland Park Wines & Liquor in the Rolden neighborhood.

The Sun's recent article on the use of zoning laws to limit liquor stores highlights a complex issue ("Zoning should be used to limit liquor stores, Hopkins study says," April 12). We support a community's right to decide for themselves what type of businesses and services are located in their neighborhoods, and we believe that alcohol licensing regulations should be enforced to deal with those who are not in compliance with the law. These are local issues that should be discussed and decided by all members of the community, including local hospitality businesses.

Zoning laws have become a powerful way to reduce the number of liquor stores in cities, but too few government officials use them, Johns Hopkins University public health researchers said in a new report. Researchers from the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health have created a guide to advise governments of the regulatory power they have to combat alcohol abuse. They hope the report, published in the journal Preventing Chronic Disease, will bring more attention to the issue.

Next week, the Baltimore City Council will consider the changes to the zoning code that will affect about 100 of the city's 1,300 existing liquor outlets. These outlets have been non-conforming for more than 40 years, and it's time for them to be closed. During the Planning Commission's hearings, two students from Patterson High School testified on why the number of liquor outlets needs to be reduced. One of the commissioners said their testimony moved him more than any of the others.

The Baltimore City Planning Commission approved legislation Thursday that would overhaul Baltimore's zoning code if passed by the City Council. The legislation, the first comprehensive zoning law to come to the City Council in 40 years, went through several drafts in recent years before it was introduced to the council in October. Even then, it was approved by the commission with dozens of amendments based on public input. The law is designed to make the city's zoning more comprehensible by including maps, diagrams and charts for quick consultation.
