Mark Your Calendar for Virtual NPU-F Meeting on Monday, February 21 at 7:00 p.m.
One of the agenda items is the Platinum Club's alcohol license application. This club is in the Morningside-Lenox Park neighborhood but directly across from Piedmont Heights, separated by Piedmont Road.
As a resident or property owner in Piedmont Heights, you are eligible to vote at NPU-F meetings.
From our friends over in Morningside: We are trying to be more vigilant about the abuse of alcohol licenses that contribute to noise, illegal parking, and other nuisance behaviors at establishments along Cheshire Bridge and nearby neighborhood streets. The new owners of the Platinum Club at 1905 Piedmont Road are seeking an alcohol license. This location has been on our radar for a while.
Residents in the Manchester area have made a large number of 911 calls to report excessive noise and illegal parking related to Platinum Club customers. Entrance to the Manchester area townhouses is frequently impeded by overflow parking at the Club along Rockledge Road. The Club does not have adequate parking as required in the City of Atlanta alcohol code.
We encourage all neighbors who are concerned about this alcohol license application to join Monday evening’s NPU meeting to weigh in on their decision to endorse the license or not.

You must be registered as a resident of NPU-F to vote (you can register once, and it's valid for 12 months). If you registered last summer, you are good to go for this meeting. If you need to register, please do so BEFORE February 21. Otherwise, your membership may not be verified in time.
Hope to see you on the NPU Zoom call.

More about the alcohol license process: The NPU-F vote regarding the alcohol license is presented to the City of Atlanta License Review Board (LRB). The LRB then votes to accept or deny the alcohol application. As we saw with the record turnout against Octopus Kitchen's application, the LRB doesn't always vote in line with the NPU. Once the LRB votes, the Mayor has 60 days to make the final decision.
