Lenexa Updates Alcohol Guidelines Near Public Market

LENEXA, Kan. – Lenexa city council on Tuesday approved an ordinance updating guidelines on when and where residents can consume alcohol at community events.

In 2017, the city approved an ordinance establishing the Lenexa Public Market Common Consumption Area (Public Market CCA) at 8750 Penrose Lane. Establishing a CCA allows people to buy and consume alcohol in specific indoor and outdoor spaces.

The latest ordinance updates the CCA boundaries to cover the Lenexa Civic Campus between Penrose Lane and Winchester Street, and 87th Street Parkway across a single car length of the first floor parking garage on the Civic Campus. The consumption zone excludes the Johnson County Library and the Lenexa Leisure Center.

The ordinance extends consumption hours to comply with new state regulations. Within the CCA, alcohol can only be purchased or consumed between 6 a.m. and midnight.

Residents cannot purchase alcohol outside of the CCA and bring it into the designated area without the prior written approval of the City Manager.
