The Circle K on East Mission Road currently has a Type 20 liquor license which allows the sale of beer and wine for off-sale consumption. Circle K would like to convert that to a Type 21 license which would also allow for the sale of spirits, and the Fallbrook Community Planning Group is supportive with conditions.
The planning group voted 14-0 Monday, Oct. 17, with Anna Strahan absent, to recommend approval of the liquor license conversion with the condition that a rear fence be erected.
Circle K opened at that location in 1978. L&M Fertilizer is on the same block and has been there since 1968.
“There should be a fence on the top of that wall,” L&M Fertilizer owner Leo McGuire said.
McGuire said that vagrants travel from behind the Circle K property onto the Circle K premises.
“If we just make some improvements to the property they could upgrade their license,” he said.
A state Alcoholic Beverage Control liquor license can include conditions. In this case, it would apply to the revised license.
The Type 21 license would replace the existing Type 20 license.
“It’s not an additional license,” planning group chair Eileen Delaney said.
