5 Ways To Stop The Ban of Alcohol in Rosa Parks Square

Do you love going to events in Downtown? Things like Christmas on First Street, movies in the park, Hoppy Hour Yoga and the Just Tap'd Craft Beer Festival? Do you enjoy having a beer while you're there?

Macon - Bibb County commissioners are looking to pass an ordinance to ban alcohol in Rosa Parks Square. Many members of the Macon-Bibb community respectfully oppose any ordinance or name change that would seek to ban alcohol in Rosa Park Square during private events. If you are opposed to this ban, here are 5 ways you can let you voice be heard.

1.  Sign the Online Petition

Sign the online petition by clicking HERE telling them you oppose this ban and do not want tax payer dollars to be spent on a park with limited use.

2.  Sign The Petition At Local Participating Businesses

While visiting any number of local businesses sign the petition in their store.  Just Tap’d, Ocmulgee Brewpub, Parish, Fatty’s Pizza, Reboot Arcade and Bar and Travis Jean will all have the petition available for you to sign.

3.  Show Your Support

Please show your support by attending a protest of the Commissioners meeting at City Hall on Tuesday June 20, 2017 at 5:00pm.  The Commissioners meeting begins at 6:00pm and will take place at City Hall which is located at 700 Poplar Street.

4.  Email  Your Commissioner

Send an email message to the list of commissioners listed below and copy [email protected] letting them know of your displeasure. When you do, you'll receive a free Summer Honey Lager next time you come into Just Tap’d.
