WHEREAS, the definition of "Historic home event" in Section 17.04.060 of the Metropolitan Code refers to the hosting of events “in a private home”, with no further clarification regarding where such events may be conducted; and
WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that the definition of "Historic home event" be amended to clarify the proper location for Historic home events.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. That Title 17 of the Code of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, Zoning Regulations, is hereby amended by amending Section 17.04.060, Definitions of General Terms, by deleting the definition of “Historic home event”, and substituting with the following new definition:
"Historic home event" means the hosting of events such as, but not limited to, weddings or parties for pay in a private home which has been judged to be historically significant by the historical commission. The event must be confined to an enclosed area within the private home, limited to the space between a floor and ceiling that is enclosed on all sides by solid walls or windows, exclusive of doorways, which extend from the floor to ceiling.
Section 2. This Ordinance shall take effect immediately after its passage and such change be published in a newspaper of general circulation, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
