City loosens open container law on private property

The Clemson City Council passed a change to the open container law, restricting the law’s rules to public property such as streets, sidewalks and parks on March 20.

This change allows the legal possession of an alcoholic beverage on any private property of landowners who allow it, opening areas such as parking lots and front yards of businesses to those that wish to imbibe. 

The change was spurred by Patrick Square, which wanted to be able to host events with alcohol on the square without a complex permit process each time.

Open containers are still prohibited on all public property, including parks, streets and sidewalks, and private landowners are still able to prohibit alcohol on the premises.
