But, someone over on the ForceWeb forums just posted a link with some official city
According to that site, here are the things that have been put into place as of now:
The Council’s package has four main elements: 1) A new nightlife enforcement unit that could issue fines and respond to neighborhood resident complaints; 2) the strengthening of the City’s existing nuisance code; 3) a new requirement that large nightclubs prepare a safety plan; and 4) legislation requesting that the Mayor’s staff research and report back to Council with recommendations concerning club security staff training, zoning, promoter licensing, and new enforcement authority held by the Washington State Liquor Control Board.
The devil is no doubt in the details, though, especially with number two on that list.
That site also contains a variety of links to ordinances and resolutions that will be considered in September. But, I've got to admit, I'm such a skeptic of governments' intentions that a line like this one is scary to me:
In September, the Economic Development and Neighborhoods Committee will also consider “smartening” Seattle noise code as it applies to clubs at a future meeting.
What the hell is "smartening?" Sounds like code to me.
