Trinity Terrace folks want a beer? Church has no objection

By Scott Nishimura

At least some of the good folks who live in the Trinity Terrace retirement towers near downtown may want to take a drink from time to time.

Trinity Terrace is expanding and wants to sell beer and wine in its lounges and dining areas and is asking the City Council for a variance from the ordinance that bars alcohol sales within 300 feet of a church, public school or public hospital.

Trinity Terrace, at 1600 Texas St., is 205 feet from the First Presbyterian Church.

Trinity Terrace “is working hard to continue to meet the needs of its residents by expanding the facility and providing more dining options,” Trinity Terrace says in a letter accompanying its application.

First Presbyterian doesn’t have a problem with this.

By unanimous vote, “the Session - the governing body - of First Presbyterian Church wishes to support the application of Trinity Terrace for a beer and wine license,” the Rev. Karl Travis wrote in a letter to the city. “The church in no way objects to the granting of this license.”

The City Council will vote Tuesday.
