In January 2007, I contacted residents, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Business Improvement District in an effort to organize public support to rescind the zoning variance that allowed the Palladium Night Club to occupy 595 Main Street. Our testimony convinced the Zoning Board to approve changes that would prevent another nightclub from occupying this property ever again. We all remember how dangerous concerts and other activities at the Palladium degraded our downtown as well as the surrounding neighborhoods. I am happy to report that the Zoning Board unanimously agreed. Thanks to everyone who participated for this important protection.
