RICHMOND – Richmond City Council voted 5-4 Monday night to deny Captain Buzzy's Beanery a special use permit to extend its hours and serve wine and beer.

The coffee shop, located at 2623 E. Broad Street is in a neighborhood zoned as a single-family residential area. This requires shops to have a certain permit in order to sell food and drinks. The proposed changes would have extended the coffee shop hours by one hour, keeping the shop until 10 p.m. instead of 9 p.m.

Both sides of this controversial issue spoke for about an hour prior to the vote. Topics ranged from issues with noise control and parking to promoting local business.

Captain Buzzy's has operated from this location since June 2003.
