The proposed Desert Diamond West Valley Resort and Casino in Glendale has applied for a liquor license with the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control. As residents in Glendale are aware, the proposed location is adjacent to Raymond S. Kellis High School and several residential neighborhoods. Serving liquor at the casino means more drunk drivers on the roads, congested traffic, and late night activity in an otherwise quiet community.
The Department allows a short window to file protests for liquor license applications. We encourage residents of Glendale, particularly those near the proposed casino, to file protests with the State Liquor Board. Alcohol service at all hours of day and night does not belong in neighborhoods or near impressionable youth. Call us to pledge your support and attend the public hearing 623-633-2031. Get involved and fight back!
