Dan Terry was present to respond to Board questions. Mr. Terry indicated that he had recently obtained
all of his former properties which has resulted in a slight modification of his submitted plans. The ice
cream parlor will be placed in the former 1187 Creative/Birger’s Pub building. For the main building at
213 East Main, he would like to open it in time for the eclipse after which he will shift his focus to
making use of the kitchen inside of that facility while retaining a bar license. Chief Grubbs requested
clarification regarding plans for any activities on the patio and Mr. Terry stated that he would like to use
the outdoor space, but with no entertainment and no speakers. As there was no beer garden application
included with this item, the Board inquired how to proceed. The Clerk suggested that the main motion be
based upon the application before them, then include a recommendation regarding the use of the beer
garden (patio) for the Commission to consider, assuming that the beer garden application was submitted
and no issues were noted by Development Services.
D. Monty moved, J. Mills seconded, to recommend approval of a Class B2 liquor license for Dan Terry
d/b/a The Sand Piper, pending receipt of outstanding items, and furthermore, since he has indicated that
he would like to use the beer garden which has been in use for many years, if he submits an application, to
recommend that the Commission approve said beer garden application which will include no live
entertainment and no speakers. All voted aye; motion declared carried.
