Council approves license agreement for building foundation
Kent City Council signed off on a license agreement this week that will allow Fairmount Properties mixed-used 'Building C' to occupy a portion of the public right-of-way on South DePeyster Street. The foundations of the $4.5 million building will encroach an estimated 2 inches, and the footers will encroach as much as 10 inches into the right-of-way, according to a memo from the city manager's office to council.

"Speakeasy" themed club planned for restored downtown landmark
Kent City Council will hear a request for a liquor license transfer this week for the second time in as many months. The developer of Acorn Corner and the owners proposing a new bar, The Secret Cellar, in the restored building's basement will ask council members Wednesday to sign off on a trex liquor license transfer. Kent has existing regulations for allowing the transfer of liquor licenses via Ohio's "Trex" liquor license transfer process into the city, but The Secret Cellar fails to meet two of the three core regulations. Council has the authority to grant variances to permit trex transfers in cases where businesses fail to meet the requirements. The proposed new wine and beer bar would feature a speakeasy, 1920s theme with seats for …
