Liquor Stores

1. Why does the City have so many liquor stores?
In May 2015, residents voted to approve the sale of alcohol in Rowlett. As with any business selecting where to locate, the establishment of liquor stores is market-driven. They locate in Rowlett because their research has determined that the business can be supported. 

2. Can the City limit the amount of liquor stores we have in Rowlett?
The City may NOT, according to State law, discriminate against or treat these businesses any differently than others wishing to locate here. The City CAN, and has, adopted the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission regulations regarding distance requirements related to churches, hospitals and schools. The City has also adopted an Ordinance allowing these businesses to request a variance from the distance requirement.
