Winston-Salem one step closer to entertainment district
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.– The City of Winston-Salem is a step closer to getting an entertainment district downtown after the City-Council Planning Board approved the area which would be rezoned.
The proposed entertainment district would make up the east and west sides of Trade St. between Seventh and Ninth Streets, and between MLK Jr. Dr. and Ninth St.
The entertainment district must meet certain requirements including additional lighting and crosswalks, as well as parking. Entertainment venues will also not be allowed within 250 ft. of any homes.
A city ordinance allows higher noise levels designated as entertainment districts.
The Planning Board’s request will now go to the Winston-Salem City Council for approval.
