The Beachland Ballroom enhances the attractiveness of Cleveland as a destination and is vital to the recovery of the Collinwood neighborhood.

Take away the ability to afford live music in Cleveland and you are essentially asking the rest of the young people to move away from Ohio.

Beachland is one of the strongest draws for entertainment in the city. Visitors from out of town want to go there. They book the best, affordable musical acts, in so many genres. They also provide free concerts, a boon in these times for everyone, and a service to budding musicians by providing them with an audience. Beachland is owned by local folks, not like Regal Cinemas, House of Blues or other non-local corporate ventures.

Value this community asset, Cleveland City Council. Tax amnesty, please.

Thanks for adding your voice.

The Beachland Ballroom is a Cleveland Cultural icon. Plus, it doesn't make any $$ and supports the Arts, so it should technically be a non-profit!

The Beachland is the best small venue in the greater Cleveland and Akron area. It would be a travesty if it closed because of an admissions tax of 8 percent that is meant for venues like the Q and Progressive Field.

The Beachland is not only a huge anchor for the Waterloo arts district, it's a great place to go! Cleveland needs it, and I love having it around...

The Beachland Ballroom is my favorite concert venue in Cleveland and is the only reason I've ever been to that part of town. It's become part of the city's culture.

This is a very bad tax for small businesses in Cleveland, Beachland Ballroom included. They need every cent they can scrape together just to keep going in these rough times. If the rules are going to be changed, they should encourage rather than discourage venues like Beachland from bringing talent to town.
