The proposed entertainment district spans about six blocks on 48 or Main Street Ohio and about five blocks on Franklin Street, records show.

The designation would support strategies for the city’s business development that call for a “high-end bar with music, a brewery … (and) unique restaurants,” according to the proposal.

The proposed district “would mirror the existing 113 acre Architectural Preservation District” and its approval would give access to 15 new liquor permits, Centerville records show.

Currently the city has fewer than five in that area, said Centerville Development Director Michael Norton-Smith.
