According to The Times-Picayune, the New Orleans City Council denied the proposed building plan for a new music venue on Frenchmen Street this past Tuesday.

This is the second time that the applicant Penny Young has been denied.

The original concept for the venue included a larger plan with more stages and bars. However, the revised plan was denied, due to the fact that in 2004 it was decided that no more than “20 percent of the buildings between Esplanade Avenue and Royal Street” are allowed to offer live entertainment.

The applicant has been given two more weeks to revise her plan but will still face strong opposition.
