NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA (4/4/2007)"
Testimony was taken on this item. Phil Nigro, proprietor, testified that this ordinance would allow his establishment, the Beaumont Club, to allow minors to attend concerts. Many of the performers have stipulations to have a diverse audience (relating to age) attending their shows. The current code section only allows minors into restaurants or establishments that sell a certain amount of food products. His establishment does not meet that criteria. Vic Cook stated that this ordinance would change that criteria. Mr. Solomon, partner in the Beaumont Club, also testified to this ordinance. Councilwoman Hermann asked about places such as the new Sprint Arena, the KCP&L District and Kemper Arena. Were those exceptions? How were they classified? Mr. Solomon stated that he had researched that information and since the Sprint Arena and KCP&L District were still being built it would be hard to categorize them. Kemper Arena is classified as an eating establishment because of the volume of concession sells it makes during events. This item was held until further information could be obtained.
