At its Dec. 20 meeting, the Fairhope City Council declined to pass an ordinance that would have created an entertainment district for the city’s Central Business District. Several residents spoke out about the proposed district, which would allow for the open carry of alcoholic beverages within certain time parameters for special events held in downtown Fairhope. Public reaction was overwhelmingly negative about the proposed district.
