Today Jim Miller, president of the Belltown Business Association, released a letter to Mayor McGinn in response shooting that occurred on New Year’s Eve (see video) outside of the nightclub, Copper Cart Cafe. The letter asks the City and the Mayor to acknowledge and solve the problem immediately.
For the sake of our Belltown neighborhood, we respectfully ask that the City leadership (Mayor, Council, and SPD) declare public safety as a priority and act immediately with a sense of urgency. We expect immediate action be taken with the Copper Cart. An emergency shutdown facilitated by the Mayor’s office should be imposed immediately while the Liquor Control Board follows its due processes.
