Mayor Jordan welcomed several members of Boy Scout Troop 116 who were in attendance as part of a requirement for earning their Citizenship in the Community merit badge.
Mayor Jordan walked on an item related to Arkansas Music Pavilion officials’ intentions to move their venue to the Washington County Fairgrounds.
The fairground property is currently zoned R-A, Residential Agricultural, where outdoor music establishments are not allowed to operate. The council voted unanimously Tuesday night to change that law to allow such establishments in R-A if they can successfully receive a conditional use permit from the Planning Commission.
“I don’t normally do this,” said Jordan, “but this is time-sensitive.”
AMP officials have said they intend to be up and running by Saturday, April 21 for the first concert of the 2012 season.
