    Did they also agree to change the name from Brookhaven to “DeKalb Lite”?

    There are already too many Police on Buford Highway. I’m fine with using some of the money for more police but the so called “negative secondary effects” are not just crime but so called lower real estate values due to the types of business. So why not put some money into making Buford Highway more attractive.

    oh and I don’t mean a bunch of wayfinding signs or faux antique streetlights. Landscaping that’s maintained is needed.

    We don’t buy your story JMax. While I’m happy the PP can stay for now the damage has been done. People aren’t going to forget the behavior of the city on this issue.

    Ok, just restate the ‘exit time’ to forever and then move rcw’s comments to the bottom of the page and everything is almost back to normal.

    But, can we sue bergthold for the money he has extorted from Brokehaven taxpayers for no apparent reason?

    Also, now that the TAD issue has been stomped into submission (at least until the next Ginralasembly Session) can we reasonably assume that no other ‘grabby’ issues will pop up from the ground?

    This is a good outcome for Brookhaven and a decent outcome for the Pony. Three cheers for reasonable governance.

    Too bad JMax and crew have no regard for spending taxpayers money on a fruitless effort to annex Highlands properties that the Appeals court ruled unanimously belongs to Chamblee.

    How much more is going to be wasted taking this to the Supreme Court, just so JMax can be the big frog he always dreamed of being? Except the Supreme Court will turn you down too, so it won’t even work.

    Congratulations, Brookhaven. You’re getting a reputation for being the crappy neighbor everyone around you wishes would move away.

    You want to know how I know this law got pulled out of someone’s butt, and not out of any valid evidence that this club actually causes an increase in drugs and prostitution in the area?

    “Councilwoman Williams said that she stayed out of the meetings negotiating the deal, but did make a suggestion that got included. Her suggestion was, “The Pink Pony agrees before the end of the 6-year term, if it is not in compliance and is closing, that it will provide job placement services for its adult entertainers. In addition, the staff will be trained on the subject of sex trafficking.”

    JC, that is the most jaw-droppingly condescending statement I’ve ever read. Clearly she’s never even BEEN in the Pink Pony or talked to any of the dancers working there. I danced at the Pony for two years – loved it. It was well managed. I made good money, put myself through grad school and helped my husband through school as well. So imagine how dispiriting it was for me when I graduated and got a job doing cancer research… and made about 1/4th of the money working full time compared to what I did in 3 nights a week at the Pony. I went right back. Oops, I mean… of course I worked at the Pony because I have no other marketable job skills with a Masters degree!

    Sex trafficking. I mean, seriously? Has she talked to any of the girls there? Her idea of what happens in strip clubs most be solely informed by whatever trashy television she watches. Most of the dancers I knew were educated or in the process of getting higher education, and some of them enjoyed it because it was a second job with a flexible schedule that allowed them to pursue other things.

    This whole crusade against the Pony was ill-advised and idiotic. I am disgusted.

    SAD FOR THE PINK PONY, THERE SHOULD BE NO EXIT AGREEMENT AT ALL, THEY HAVE BEEN PEACEFUL NEIGHBORS FOR 20 PLUS YEARS, SHAME ON BROOKHAVEN AND ALL THOSE HIDDEN AGENDAS!
