CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A panel that has been studying ways to ease problems associated with late-night entertainment in Charleston has completed its report and Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. says the city plans to implement the panel’s suggestions.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/1SMwGFQ ) the recommendations include regulations for parking, noise and trash collection at night spots within 500 feet of residential areas.

The city and business owners will form a nonprofit group to manage late-night activity.

Another recommendation is soft closings for night spots. That would allow businesses the stay open past 2 a.m. as long as they don’t serve alcohol after that hour. That would ease the problem of crowds of people pouring into the streets when night spots all close at the same time.
