Owners, residents, police meet about Celtic Crossing

On August 11, Cooper-Young residents, representatives of Celtic Crossing, and the Memphis Police Department met at Co-Work at 902 S. Cooper to discuss neighborhood complaints stemming from the restaurant.

Neighbors near the business at 903 S. Cooper had a long list of complaints about the popular nightspot, including excessive noise, illegal parking, littering, public nuisances and indecencies and overall safety.

Owners of Celtic Crossing outlined a number of measures they have taken recently such as turning down music after 11 p.m. per city ordinance and increased managerial manpower and security on the weekends. Beyond supporting a parking garage, the owners also offered to fund and support other solutions, including a Keep Cooper-Young Clean campaign, an adopt-a-street-program, more street garbage cans, and a security patrol residents can contact with complaints. They also encouraged residents to e-mail them with any concerns.

The meeting broke-up with all sides agreeing to wait and see the effects of Celtic Crossing and police efforts with the possibility of meeting again in a few months.
