AMF Lanes granted liquor license
The Baltimore County Liquor Board granted the Towson AMF Lanes bowling alley a liquor license Monday when management came to an agreement with the Campus Hills Community Association in a board meeting.
Baltimore County Councilman David Marks said that the Campus Hills Community Association, who represents the surrounding community, compromised with the bowling alley and stopped their opposition. Members of the association said previously they felt that the liquor license would cause problems in the area, including increased crime.
“The Campus Hills Community Association dropped its opposition to the liquor license in exchange for 20 protections in a legally-binding agreement including better security and communication [from the alley],” he said.
Liquor Board Chief Administrator Mike Mohler said that the Campus Hills Community Association pushed for specific regulations that the bowling alley agreed to in order to obtain the license.
“The license was granted when the community met with the bowling alley [management] and made an agreement in writing that there are certain things the bowling alley has to do with alcohol and cleanliness,” Mohler said. “The bottom line is that the liquor license was granted.”
In previous meetings, the Campus Hills Community Association could not agree on the time that the alcohol should be served until. The bowling alley agreed to restrict their hours.
“They agreed that the hours will be staggered throughout the week,” Mohler said. “I believe they can sell alcohol until 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. on some nights.”
