Seattle's Department of Planning and Development says it is investigating concerns that the strip club, DreamGirls at Rick's put up a large digital sign with provocative video.
"It's just a matter of respect. If you have a permit that says you’re not going to have moving video that's what you should do and that's the responsible thing to do," said Nathan Lowe, who contacted KIRO7 about the concerns.
A permit approved by the DPD for Dream Girls at Rick's back in June states, "Images shall not change more than seven times per minute. No flashing, no video display methods, and no off-premises advertising is permitted by city ordinance."
The current sign flashes and has moving images of women dancing at the strip club on 11332 Lake City Way NE.
"There are a lot of kids in this community and it's clearly you can't walk through here without really noticing that sign. So that's my primary concern are the kids," said Lowe.
DPD spokeswoman, Wendy Shark said that an inspector will be sent out to the business on Monday afternoon.
"There are a lot of kids in this community and it's clearly you can't walk through here without really noticing that sign. So that's my primary concern are the kids," said Shark.
When we went to ask the business about the permit issue a manager asked us to leave and said, "No comment."
In July, KIRO-TV spoke to residents who were opposed to the city approving any permit for the 128 sq. ft. sign.
"It's not the strip clubs that bother me. It's the signs. Like, why does everybody have to know? I mean, everybody know what happens there. You don't need a sign. If somebody wants to go to the strip club, they're just going to go," said Charla Lemoine, who lives nearby.
DPD even if the business is found in violation of what the city permitted, Shark said the business likely won't be fined.
She said DPD will talk to the business about getting into compliance.
"It's something I wouldn't want to watch reel over and over and over again which happens as you're coming down Northgate and you come to Lake City Way. It's right in your view," said Lowe.Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:27:19 -0700
A man who was out walking his dog has been arrested in the sexual assault of a Palo Alto woman, authorities said.
Palo Alto police said Arthur Julian Fodor had been booked into the San Mateo County Main Jail on one misdemeanor count of sexual battery (for the touching) and one misdemeanor count of lewd conduct (for soliciting the victim to engage in lewd conduct in public).
Investigators said the assault took place in August.
A woman in her fifties reported to police that she had been assaulted in the 2300 block of Amherst St. by a man walking a dog after the man had struck up a conversation with her and walked with her for several blocks.
The woman was not injured and provided a detailed description of the suspect to police.
Fodor was identified as the suspect during a lengthy investigation and a warrant was issued for his arrest last Thursday.
Later in the day, Fodor was arrested during a traffic stop.
