Late-Night Committee to hold listening sessions Wed. Feb. 11 on bar ban - Charleston City Paper

Four months have passed since Charleston City Council placed a yearlong moratorium on late-night establishments in designated parts of the peninsula, all in an effort to curb the massive crime-wave that had erupted along Upper King and the surrounding neighborhoods — never mind the fact that most of the so-called crimes were just drunk people walking home.

And as promised, the city has formed a late-night committee to examine the impact of the moratorium and to come up with a few recommendations about what to do next. (No word on whether Mayor Joe Riley and City Council will actually take those recommendations to heart, but there's always hope.)

On Wed. Feb. 11, the Late-Night Activity Review Committee will host the first of a series of listening sessions to find out what the people think of all of this. The meeting will take place at the downtown library, 68 Calhoun Street., with the chat-fests set for 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 5:30 p.m.

While each person on the 12-member city council selected one individual to appear on the committee, the rest were either hand-picked by the Riley administration or members of city government. Mayor Riley, city planner Tim Keane, and Police Chief Greg Mullen are on the committee — natch. The rest of the committee features lawyers (Frank McCann, David Aylor, Edward Pritchard ), real estate types (Dan Henderson, Patterson Smith, Michael Shuler), restauranteurs (Steve Palmer, David Marconi, Bill Hall), and neighborhood association leaders (Marvetta James, Susan Bass).

Local attorney Elliott A. Smith, a member of the late-night committee and one of the folks behind the pro-nightlife group BACE League of Charleston, believes the listening sessions are a chance for bar goers and supporters to stand up and be counted.

"This is an exciting opportunity for Charleston's burgeoning creative class and young professionals to become more engaged in the vision of Charleston's future,"... Source: www.charlestoncitypaper.com
