Small Business Lunch at Halls
The King Street Marketing Group and Halls Chophouse are pleased to present Tim Keane, Director of Planning Preservation and Sustainability for the City of Charleston, as our guest speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, May 8th.
Keane accepted this position with the City of Charleston five years ago and, from the start, he was put in the center of virtually every heated controversy in Charleston that involves planning, zoning and preservation.
As Charleston business men and women, you need to know:
***What's happening with the Tourism Management Plan Update and how will it affect your business?
***With all the new development downtown, will there be any place to park?
***Will there be public restrooms?
***What's happening in West Ashely and James Island? Is the City of Charleston planning any more "Gathering Space Developments?"
Tim Keane served as the Director Planning for Charleston in 1999 and then left in 2004 for several years to apply his talents in the private sector. He returned in 2009 to his previous position at the request of Mayor Riley and took on the additional responsibilities of "Preservation" and "Sustainability."
Today, Keane's department is directly involved tourism management, preserving Charleston's history and sustaining livability in Charleston. He's involved in everything from Ghost Tours to Cruise Ships and re-development to re-zoning.
Charleston has a very vocal populace and Tim Keane will tell you where the City of Charleston stands on the issues that are making today's headlines.
Each month, Small Business Lunch at Halls features a distinguished speaker from the business, civic or political arenas upstairs at Halls Chophouse with an imaginative three-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Matthew Niessner.
Tickets are $29 per person for the luncheon and parking. Doors open at 11:30 AM and lunch is served promptly at noon. Limited seating of 70 participants provides an intimate experience with each speaker.
Halls Chophouse is located at 434 King Street in downtown Charleston. Parking, validated at the event, is available at the Visitors Center Garage on Ann Street between King and Meeting Streets.
