Council Committee Approves Old Louisville Live Performance Resolution

by Sheila AshA measure to lift restrictions on live entertainment in restaurants and other businesses in Old Louisville is moving forward.The Metro Council's Planning and Zoning Committee unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday sponsored by Councilman David James. James says legalizing live performances would bring new businesses to Old Louisville and help existing establishments."This is really about the neighborhood and about economic opportunities and growth for the neighborhood where the businesses and the residents can co-exist in a peaceful way and enjoy each other and give each other support," he says.James says he’s received little opposition to the change. The resolution will go before the full council next week. If it passes, the Metro Planning Commission will hold a public hearing and draft a change to zoning laws. That change would again need to be approved by the council.
