WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Winston-Salem City Council on Monday postponed a vote on whether to allow an apartment near Ziggy’s, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

The rezoning request, from local artist Jonathan Waterbury, prompted a debate about whether to allow homes near entertainment venues.

Waterbury has lived in the building he asked to be rezoned for years; Ziggy’s opened last summer on Ninth Street, according to the paper.

The council is scheduled to discuss the request at its next meeting on April 2.
