Whistler's Forged Axe Throwing wants to add liquor-licensed area, parking spaces



At its regular meeting Tuesday, Nov. 5, Whistler council greenlit an application from Forged Axe Throwing to add several parking stalls at its Function Junction site that are needed for its proposed liquor-licensed area. The business has proposed adding a 774-square-foot (72-square-metre) licensed area for liquor sales to its indoor axe throwing space, which would require an additional five parking spots, for a total of 17 parking stalls.

A support letter for the project received 66 signatures from the community.

Councillor Jen Ford welcomed the proposal and said her opinion of Function has changed since the addition of new sidewalks aimed at increasing driver and pedestrian safety. "Function is becoming more vibrant," she said. "This is a win, I think, and yes, we absolutely need to consider future further development to make sure that parking isn't over-subscribed in Function, but these things even out those peaks and valleys of use there."
