CANTON – The creation of a community entertainment district that encompasses the Hall of Fame Village will provide up to 15 new liquor permits for the area.

City Council on Monday agreed to establish the 75-acre Hall of Fame Village Community Entertainment District, provided the Ohio Division of Liquor Control gives final approval. Council previously approved such a district for 281 acres in central Canton in 2020.

“That was right at the beginning of COVID, and the Department of Liquor Control and other state agencies were working remotely, so there was a substantial delay,” Mayor Thomas Bernabei said. “I would anticipate this to move much more quickly with regard to their approvals.”

Council President William Sherer II and Councilman Bill Smuckler, D-at large, were absent from the meeting. The 11 present council members voted in favor of the district.
