Save the Nook! Save Austin Music! Stop the Westin from Killing Our Weird!
After attempting to work collaboratively to address the Westin's baseless noise complaints, the Nook Amphitheatre and all of Austin music is in jeopardy. Because the Nook operates within legal sound limits, the Westin's 12 months of harassing noise complaints have been without merit and unpersued. But instead of collaborating on a guaranteed joint solution, the Westin sued the Nook for music as civil nuisance.
Austin is now a place where international corporate giants come to profit from our culture and our taxpayers, yet would prefer to shutter local businesses than work with them to achieve mutually beneficial results.
Sign this petition to tell Mayor Adler and the City Council to take action -- by local ordinance or otherwise -- to prevent new big cororate interests from moving into a protected entertainment and music distric and then usurping control over that very entertainment and music from which it seeks to profit.
Don't Let The Westin Kill Austin's Weird!
