Cookeville officials deciding liquor store sites

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- City officials in Cookeville are wrestling with where to allow package liquor stores.

The Cookeville City Council has decided tentatively to amend the city zoning code, meaning no package stores will be allowed in neighborhood commercial zones.

Such zones are a blend of business and residential properties.

According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, the council has modified a recommendation made by the city planning commission.

In November, Cookeville voters approved a referendum to allow the sale of package liquor inside the city limits.
