SECTION TWO. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS.

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. The number of establishments selling alcoholic beverages and the associated problems discourage more desirable and needed commercial uses in the area. In order to preserve the residential character and the neighborhood-serving commercial uses of the area, there shall be a moratorium on the issuance of new liquor licenses with the area beginning at the point of intersection of N Market St and Laflin St, and proceeding westerly along N Market St to N Spring Ave, and proceeding northerly on N Spring Ave to Cottage Ave, and proceeding westerly on Cottage Ave to Prairie Ave, and proceeding northerly on Prairie Ave to Lincoln Ave, and proceeding westerly on Lincoln Ave to N Vandeventer Ave and proceeding northerly on N Vandeventer Ave to Natural Bridge Ave and proceeding westerly along Natural Bridge Ave to Fair Ave, and proceeding northerly along Fair Ave to Kossuth Ave, and proceeding easterly along Kossuth Ave to Warne Ave, and proceeding northerly along Warne Ave to Carter Ave, and proceeding westerly along Carter Ave to Mary Ave, and proceeding easterly along Mary Ave to W Florissant Ave, and proceeding easterly along W Florissant Ave to Warne Ave, and proceeding easterly along Warne Ave to W Florissant Ave, and proceeding easterly along W Florissant Ave to De Soto Ave, and proceeding easterly along De Soto Ave to Blair Ave, and proceeding southerly along Blair Ave to E Grand Ave, and proceeding easterly along E Grand Ave to I-70, and proceeding southerly along I-70 to Benton St, and proceeding westerly along Benton St to N 13th St, and proceeding northerly along N 13th St to Wright St, and proceeding westerly along Wright St to a north/south alleyway between Blair and 14th St, proceeding southerly along such alleyway to St Louis Ave, proceeding westerly along St Louis Ave to N Florissant Ave, and proceeding northerly along N Florissant Ave to N 20th St, and proceeding northerly along N 20th St to Hebert St, and proceeding westerly along Hebert St to N 20th St, and proceeding northerly along N 20th St to Palm St, and proceeding westerly along Palm St to N 21st St, and proceeding southerly along N 21st St to Rauschenbach Ave, and proceeding southerly along Rauschenbach Ave to Hebert St, and proceeding westerly along Hebert St to N 25th St, and proceeding southerly along N 25th St to east/west alleyway between University St and St. Louis Ave, and proceeding westerly along such alleyway to Parnell St, and proceeding northerly along Parnell St to University St West, and proceeding westerly along University St West to N Jefferson Ave, and proceeding southerly along N Jefferson Ave to St Louis Ave, and proceeding westerly along St Louis Ave to Bacon St, and proceeding southerly along Bacon St to Montgomery St, and proceeding easterly along Montgomery St to north/south alleyway, and proceeding easterly along such alleyway to east/west alleyway, and proceeding southerly along such alleyway to N Garrison Ave, and proceeding southerly along N Garrison Ave to Montgomery St, and proceeding easterly along Montgomery St to Glasgow Ave, and proceeding southerly along Glasgow Ave to Benton St, and proceeding easterly to N Jefferson, and proceeding southerly on N Jefferson to N Market St, and easterly on N Market St to N 25th St, and proceeding south on N 25th St to Madison St, and proceeding easterly on Madison St to N 22nd St, and proceeding southerly on N 22nd St to Howard St, and proceeding easterly on Howard St to N 20th St, and proceeding northerly on N 20th St to Madison St, and proceeding easterly on Madison St to N 18th St, and proceeding southerly on N 18th St to Cass Ave, and proceeding westerly on Cass Ave to N Leffingwell, and proceeding southerly on N Leffingwell to Thomas St, and proceeding easterly on Thomas St to N Jefferson Ave, and proceeding southerly on N Jefferson Ave to Mills St, and proceeding westerly on Mills St to N Leffingwell, and proceeding northerly on N Leffingwell to Stoddard St, and proceeding westerly on Stoddard St to Glasgow Ave, and proceeding northerly on Glasgow Ave to Dayton St, and proceeding westerly on Dayton St to N Garrison Ave, and proceeding northerly on N Garrison Ave to Cass Ave, and proceeding easterly on Cass Ave to Glasgow Ave, and proceeding northerly on Glasgow Ave to Magazine St, and proceeding westerly on Magazine St to Laflin St, and proceeding northerly on Laflin St to the point of beginning.
