City Council unanimously approved a special use permit allowing local concert tour company Classical Movements to resume hosting live outdoor concerts at its headquarters on Princess Street, during Saturday’s public hearing. The approval includes several changes that were made to the application that limit the number of concerts Classical Movements can put on each day and the hours those concerts can be held.
According to alextimes.com, “In the original proposal submitted by Classical Movements, the company had asked to host outdoor concerts for weddings and special events between the hours of 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. for a total of eight days per month. Accepting a recommendation from the Planning Commission, council decided to restrict the hours of the concerts and have them end at 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 8 p.m. on weekdays.”
As per alextimes.com, “Council also expressly limited the number of outdoor concerts permitted during a day to four, one-hour performances. In keeping with state-wide COVID-19 restrictions, outdoor seating is limited to 50. Now, instead of granting Classical Movements license to hold outdoor concerts in perpetuity, both the Planning Commission and City Council will review the SUP after one year.”
