ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — The Enterprise City Council recently established the downtown entertainment district. This will allow people age 21 and up to carry alcoholic beverages in approved containers within the district during certain days and times.
Next year, Enterprise’s Entertainment District is expected to be in full swing. The entertainment district referred to by its initials the D.E.E.D will allow those 21 and older to carry alcoholic beverages within the boundaries of the district.
It will also be in effect during certain hours of the weekend and weekdays. There will be no drinking in the D.E.E.D on Sundays.
“We’ve been known as the city of progress for quite some time now, but recently we have started to see a lot of that progress,” Enterprise Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Erin Grantham. “With our chamber being as active as they are in the community, our tourist department being active with visit enterprise. And with main street, there’s a lot of visibility.”
Since main street in downtown Enterprise is also considered a state highway, the entertainment district will have its own distinct personality.
“There’s definitely a draw, a lot of great visibility and with the weather disasters we’ve had recently, I think it’s driving people toward the city of Enterprise,” Grantham said.
Only drinks purchased from licensed businesses in the D.E.E.D can be carried by an individual. In addition, you cannot take an alcoholic beverage from one establishment to another that sells alcohol.
