Greenville City Council To Vote On Final Ordinance For Downtown Safety

The third and final ordinance proposed after a double murder in downtown Greenville is up for debate Tuesday night.

The Greenville Planning and Zoning Commission will look at amending the zoning regulations to include a 500 foot minmum separation between night clubs or bars. The proposal stems from the death of Andrew Kirby and Landon Blackley in June outside The Other Place nightclub.

The Greenville City Council passed two new ordinances aimed at bouncers last week.

    Why do I get the feeling that all this is just a real estate struggle. Its like this incident is being used as a tool to turn down town Greenville into something a little more profitable for the city?

    Maybe they'll put other ordinances in place for some other parts of Greenville. Enforcing safety for the downtown area is an issue of high importance for the students at ECU and locals. Students from this state as well as from out of state need a safer environment. Enforcing safety for locals, students and buisnesses downtown will keep the economy of G'ville healthy. But the item here is protecting lives.

    Looks like the city is more concerned about the crime downtown than the rest of Greenville
