The three were drawn from all the applications submitted to the ABC Division.
The three applicants will go before the ABC Board on October 9 to discuss their plans. The board will then vote whether to formally approve each applicant for a permit. If approved on the 9th, the permits may not be formally awarded until 30 days after the meeting date.
