Senoia is creating an “entertainment district” that will allow open containers of alcohol at certain authorized events.
The district covers most of downtown, running from Johnson Street to Travis Street and Baggarly Way to Barnes Street. Buildings that front on Baggarly or Barnes are included in the district, and Senoia First Baptist Church also is included.
The entertainment district is an “overlay” and doesn’t affect zoning. However, the city is also planning a mass rezoning of all the property in the overlay to the “Historic Town” zoning district. HT is a commercial zoning district that doesn’t allow certain uses such as automobile repair, dry cleaning or warehouses.
