Nightclub may stick to one floor

Instead of going up, Nashville Nights wants to go over.
The owner of the proposed downtown nightclub will ask Salisbury City Council to approve a new plan to use the first floors in both 125 and 127 E. Innes St., rather than the first and second floors at 127 E. Innes.
Karen Littleton will appear before Council during the 4 p.m. meeting Tuesday in City Hall.
Building and fire code requirements preclude Nashville Nights from using the second floor at 127 E. Innes as initially planned, city staff said. The two first floor spaces would be connected by an interior passageway.
Council approved a special use permit on Nov. 16 for the original Nashville Nights plan. Council can rescind or terminate a special use permit, which is required to operate a nightclub, at any time for cause.
Council will hold another public hearing on the revised nightclub proposal, which includes at 127 E. Innes St. a reception area, bar, seating for 104, VIP lounge and bathrooms. The plan for 125 E. Innes includes a stage, dance floor, storage and seating for about 20.
Other agenda items include:
Proposed text amendment to the Land Development Ordinance to allow pole banners within the Hospital Services zoning district. Rowan Regional Medical Center wants to erect pole displays on the hospitalís decorative light poles to celebrate its 75th anniversary.
Council will hold a public hearing.
Second reading of the LDO text amendment that would allow Major Auto Repair in the Downtown Mixed Use District. It passed 3-2 on Jan. 4, a vote that requires a second reading.
Request from Rowan Regional Medical Center to allow a mobile cath lab in the right-of-way of Mocksville Avenue during hospital renovations from April to November.
Request to allow an exhaust hood to project 39 inches into the alley behind 131 E. Innes St., where Bangkok Garden will move into the Hardiman Building.
Consider authorizing Mayor Susan Kluttz to execute a quitclaim deed with the N.C. Railroad to permanently close the East Horah Street at-grade crossing.
Consider awarding a contract to Godwin Pumps of America for $137,756 to purchase a 5 MGD Godwin Diesel Pump for use by the Salisbury-Rowan Utilities Department.
