At the June 1, 2022 LPNA Board meeting, the LPNA Board voted to write a letter of support for the Earl Giles Distillery on Quincy Street

Earl Giles Support Letter from the LPNA Board of Directors:

Dear CPED, 

Earl Giles Distillery is planning to open a distillery, bar, and event space during the summer of 2022. 

We support Earl Giles efforts to open their business as planned in Logan Park Neighborhood.  The Earl Giles team began communicating with Logan Park in 2019 and most recently attended the LPNA Annual meeting in May of 2022.  Earl Giles Manager and Logan Park resident,  Aja Jones, has recently joined the LPNA board.   

We acknowledge their willingness to engage the neighborhood and appreciate that their operating hours are within an appropriate range.  Earl Giles does not face any residential buildings and management expressed a commitment to noise management.

We appreciate our new partnership with Earl Giles and look forward to future opportunities to partner on Quincy and Monroe Street improvements.

Logan Park Neighborhood Association Board of Directors
