G. The proposed revisions will add operational standards, such as minimum <br />lighting and security guards, while deleting outdated requirements, such <br />as patron registration. The proposed revisions to Chapter 11 will address <br />all live entertainment venues throughout the City and will rename the <br />Dance Permit to the Entertainment Permit. The Entertainment Permit <br />would require the permitting of any venue having live entertainment on a <br />regular basis. The proposed revisions would establish four entertainment <br />categories each specifying mandatory criteria and operational standards, <br />such as requiring minimum police officer and security staffing, attendee <br />identification scanning and a security plan. <br />H. The changes to Chapter 11 will require all entertainment venues within the <br />City that are currently conducting entertainment to obtain an <br />Entertainment Permit. Existing uses will be given a one-year grace period <br />in order to obtain the permit. <br />1. The changes will create a consistent set of regulations for all <br />entertainment venues within the City. <br />J.
