AMF Towson Lanes reach compromise
After months of debating AMF Towson Lanes’ application for a liquor license, the Campus Hills Community Association has dropped its opposition, clearing the way for the bowling alley to receive their license.
The Baltimore County liquor board will make its final ruling on the license at 11 a.m. Monday, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Although AMF Towson Lanes applied for the license over a month ago, a decision on the license was postponed to allow for the community association and the bowling alley to discuss several stipulations related to the license.
After the two sides met Nov. 8 under the mediation of Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, the bowling alley’s management agreed to several cosmetic and security improvements, including increased signage and security cameras aimed at the parking lot.
AMF will also stop selling alcohol at midnight Friday and Saturday, and 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
“Life is sometimes about picking the best of several undesirable choices and I think that’s what the community association did,” Marks said to the Baltimore Sun. “The last thing they wanted was a liquor license with no restrictions, as well as a continuation of the problems that have gone on for years at the bowling alley.”
