CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Late Night Activity Review Committee will hold a series of meetings Wednesday to examine the impact of the late-night bar ban in downtown Charleston. 

The listening sessions will be held at 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. at the Charleston County Library at 68 Calhoun Street. The public will have the opportunity to voice their opinions on the progress of the ban, and help decide the future of downtown Charleston.

Created by City Council in September 2014, the Late Night Activity Review Committee will track the effects of the one-year ban on new bars in downtown's entertainment district, and report their findings to the council when the ban is up.

Each person on the 12-member City Council selected one individual to appear on the committee, and the rest were either hand-picked by the Riley administration or members of city government. There are 21 people in the committee.
