Permanent Juvenile Curfew for Columbia's 5 Points Passes
Wednesday, August 24, 2011

 
Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia City Council has passed a permanent curfew for juveniles in Five Points, one of the city's entertainment and shopping districts.

The council passed the measure unanimously Tuesday night after a public hearing on the matter. Link: Read the Full Provisions of the New Ordinance

A temporary curfew for people 16 and under has been in place since late June, after a man was beaten in Five Points. Most of the suspects in that case were juveniles.

The permanent curfew makes it unlawful for juveniles to be in the Five Points hospitality district between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Council has also discussed expanding the curfew to the Vista and Harbison area.
