ECU cancels rescheduled Carolina Kickoff concert; offering refunds to all ticket holders

Quote:
GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - East Carolina University says it has cancelled the upcoming Carolina Kickoff concert because of problems with the rescheduled event and they are offering refunds to those who bought tickets to the original concert.

Originally, Blake Shelton was scheduled to appear at ECU last August, but that concert was cancelled because of low ticket sales, another concert in Raleigh, and problems with replacing the sod in time for football season.

People who bought tickets were allowed to attend a free make-up concert with Big & Rich, Parmalee and Tucker Beathard.

ECU says refunds will be given to all those who bought tickets to the August concert, including those who attended the free concert.

The university says it is conferring with the state Attorney General's Office about its legal options, including suing the concert promoter.

The rescheduled concert was supposed to happen April 21st at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. ECU said promoter Basis Entertainment could not make good on promises to provide musical artists, and give them adequate assurances that it could arrange the concert on the later date.

Some 6,400 tickets were sold for the original concert with Blake Shelton, and ECU says the refund process could take up to six weeks.

Anyone with questions about the refunds should contact ECU's Athletic Ticket Office, 252-737-4500, athletictickets@ecu.edu.
Good for ECU for taking initiative on refunding folks. with most tickets over $150, It's easy to see how they only sold 6500 tickets.I hope they do sue the company to recoup that cash.

Still need an actual amphitheater in the area.

On the other, it's certainly possible that having the bypass will spur development around it, meaning people living in SW Greenville, Farmville, Winterville, & Ayden will not have to go as far to travel to get to a commercial development they may normally have to travel into Greenville for. I suppose that would help, but only if commercial development really does happen along the corridor.


I am happy to hear about the Dickinson improvements. I visited a couple of weeks ago and spent some time down there. It still looks like a dump in front of these newly renovated buildings. I cannot wait for them to start them. I thought they were supposed to start that project in early 2018. I hope they start soon.

In 2006 they have talked about widening memorial to eight or even ten lanes and stantonsburg to six without building the bypass.

Council to consider amendments to Town Common, vote on long-term priorities - Daily Reflector

Quote:
The Greenville City Council will meet tonight to vote on adjustments to the ordinance for the sale of alcohol on the Town Common and to approve priorities for the coming years.

Council members will discuss amendments to the city code as part of an effort to bring more events to the Town Common.

The first change the council will vote on is a amendment to the permitting process for alcohol sales at the Town Common. The policy allows for the city or a nonprofit organization sponsoring an event to sell or serve malt beverages and fortified wine. The revised ordinance would allow the city, nonprofits, political organizations or others to serve the beverages upon obtaining all necessary ABC permits.

There are also small changes in the wording of the ordinance to make it more consistent with state law and city code.

The council also will vote to amend the city noise ordinance to allow for more frequent events at the park. City ordinances to do not allow the police department to issue more than two permits per month within the same location. The amendment would exempt the Town Common.

The goals and priorities of the council originally were mapped out during a two-day planning session in January. The city staff took the drafted version and added actionable steps to accomplishing each priority. These amended priorities will be voted on during the meeting.

Pending approval, the goals of the council for 2018-20 are:

■ Be a safe community.
■ Build great places that thrive by creating and sustaining complete neighborhoods, growing a green, resilient, healthy, and vibrant city on both sides of the river.
■ Grow the economic hub of eastern North Carolina through the proactive recruitment of businesses.
■ Enhance accessible transportation networks, public building and public infrastructure development.
■ Build a high-performing organization and govern with transparency and fiscal responsibility

In addition to these general goals, the council provided nine priorities for the city to focus on during their tenure. The priorities include

■ Develop a proactive economic development program.
■ Continue to maintain and construct core infrastructure in the city.
■ Partner with area groups to build a thriving arts and entertainment scene.
■ Ensure the cleanliness of the city and beautify entrances to our community.
■ Develop and implement a comprehensive approach to stormwater management.
■ Continue to implement the Town Common Master Plan.
■ Continue to implement the Tar River Legacy Plan including river access and Tar River vantage points.
■ Enhance public safety through street lighting and cameras.
■ Build a high-performing organization.

Council members also will vote on an ordinance requested by Arlington Crossing, LLC to rezone 5.498 acres located along the northern right-of-way of West Arlington Boulevard and adjacent to the Norfolk Southern Railroad from MO (Medical-Office) to MCG (Medical-General Commercial).

The request is not in compliance with the Future Land Use plan, but was approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission 4-1 during their Feb. 20 meeting.
