The Rail Yard

An area of TexARKana that some residents have taken to calling "The Rail Yard" has been approved for open containers of adult beverages on the streets.

TexARKana Board of Directors approved Monday an ordinance to allow open-containers of adult beverages downtown.

The ordinance, as read by Steven Hollibush (Ward 3), establishes open-container consumption of alcoholic beverages subject to boundaries and hours of use, both of which will be posted on signs provided by the city. Additionally, no glass containers of any kind will be allowed, and the ordinance can be amended at the board’s discretion as needed.

The ordinance goes into effect on October 16. Posted hours will be 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Saturday, and 11 a.m. to midnight on Sundays.
