Wards 24 and 10, which are both adjacent to Lindenwood Park, have restrictions specifically on package liquor sales -- the kind of liquor license Circle K is apply for.
Reading the ordinances it's easy to see why:
"The existence of alcoholic beverage establishments appears to contribute directly to numerous peace, health, safety and general welfare problems including loitering, littering, drug trafficking, prostitution, public drunkenness, defacement and damaging of structures, pedestrian obstructions, as well as traffic circulation, parking and noise problems on public streets and neighborhood lots. The existence of such problems creates serious impacts on the health, safety and welfare of residents of single- and multiple family within the district, including fear for the safety of children, elderly residents and of visitors to the district. The problems also contribute to the deterioration of the neighborhood and concomitant devaluation of property and destruction of community values and quality of life." -- Ordinance Number 69930

When Hurley & Hurley (Circle K's hired reps) come knocking, refuse to sign for the liquor license.
Thanks for reading,
P.S. I had to look up concomitant. It means "existing or occurring with something else; accompanying; concurrent"
