Tonight at 7PM there will be a public meeting regarding the proposed Lowest Greenville zoning ordinance. This ordinance, in a nutshell, will require most all businesses to get approval for a Specific Use Permit from the City Plan Commission (of which I am Vice Chair) and City Council to stay open after midnight.
The meeting will take place at Vickery Towers - this is the mid-rise building at Belmont at Greenville across from the Post Office and the Shell Station (map).
I encourage you to come out and listen to what is being proposed. I support any neighborhood that is trying to get a handle or certain issues, but I am taking a wait-and-see approach with respect to this one. Keep in mind that most of the commissioners haven't received the actual language of the proposed ordinance directly from city staff.
