Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Beer and Wine Coming to Richardson?

Beer and Wine Coming to Richardson?

The petition to add a Beer and Wine vote to the November election was sucessful!  Richardson has been "dry" for way too long.  Dallas to the south is mostly full wet which means the majority of Dallas can sell Beer, Wine and Liquor.  Plano to the north is "moist" which means it can only sell Beer and Wine.

For years, Richardson residents have always had to plan a drive in order to get Beer, Wine, and/or Liquor.  Hopefully, those times are coming to an end.

The vote has the basic stuff like they can't sell within a certain distance of a school or residential neighborhood.  They're even putting on the ballot that Richardson could have drive-thru Beer places.

Richardson is basically completely built out so there are no more high priced homes being built that would increase tax revenue.  Plus, a good portion of Richardson is over 65 so their taxes are frozen with the over 65 exemption.  Bringing in Beer and Wine will add a lot for the city!  I'm excited!

It's really weird in Tennessee. Beer is in one catagory and Wine  & Liquor is in another. Our county is beer only. When we drive to Harriman to get wine & Liquor the store can't sell beer. You have to go next door to the cigar store to get beer. Strange!!
