The plan to open a Main Street establishment in University Heights is not a done deal yet.
Anthony J. Sordetto requested a special use permit from the Common Council to open Main Place, a restaurant located at 3144 Main St. that would serve alcohol and have live music.
And it would occasionally host special events for people 18 and up.
Sordetto's request was sent back to the Council’s Legislation Committee on Tuesday to give him time to provide additional information and for the city's Law Department to do more research, University District Common Council Member Rasheed N.C. Wyatt said.
Many neighbors and business owners argue that given the well-documented problems the community has had with college students drinking and partying, the area just doesn’t need another bar – especially one that will market to people as young as 18.
