    "They worry cars will spill into their neighborhood. They also say noise from the business would be disruptive and traffic would make the streets unsafe for children". People drag this little refrain out in opposition to anything and everything.

    While I still support Mr Jones right to open as a restaurant at this location. I have to agree with some of the commenter’s opinions that the owner has managed to alienate some of his future customers. An eatery or a bar for that matter, is a very risky business model, not a good start for this one.

    the fact that there are already other establishments in the area should not enter into the equation unless there is a code concerning the density of such establishments. They have the right to compete with other restaurants, and the public has the right to the choice of restaurants.

    Now, if the owners of the proposed establishment falsify their application to get the permit and do not meet the required mix of food vs alcohol sales, then the city has the responsibility to enforce its codes.

    Whether or not the area "needs" another restaurant is for the public to decide with their patronage or lack of patronage; not by stopping him from opening. We don't block businesses from opening based on local opinions about whether there are too many of that business in an area. Would they try to block a car dealership from opening because they already have one in the neighborhood, or a gas station or grocery store? Or perhaps they're hoping to see the new building sitting empty, adding to local blight?

    It sounds to me like Mr. Jones is the one with a "personal vendetta" against the residents.

    I doubt he will find success in any business with this attitude of customer service.

    So, residents oppose this business because of lack of parking, increased noise, traffic congestion and child safety.

    Utah Alcohol Beverage control denied a license that allows him to serve liquor, but is open to him serving beer and wine only.

    Looks pretty clear to me what this is all about. And it aint the noise.

    Reminds me when there was an outcry in Farmington about Lagoon being open on Sunday. It was only about the "noise". We know what that was about also.

    There appears to be several commercial businesses already located on this corner, including a gas station and several stores. Can't see what the Brew-hah-ha is about.
