Various data points indicate that Lansdowne is ready for change. Demographics have evolved over the last decade as more people are moving to urban areas with town centers. Based on surveys conducted by the Lansdowne Economic Development Corporation and the Lansdowne Business and Professionals Association, 80% of those polled said they would support a referendum allowing restaurants to sell beer, wine, and spirits. In 2015, 85% of those voting on the referendum to allow a special entertainment license for the Lansdowne Theater voted in favor of liquor reform.
