NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville Mayor John Cooper says a "Stop Use Order" has been issued at the property where a large house party was held over the weekend.
Cooper issued a statement Monday, after hundreds attended the house party in East Nashville, saying it was "in clear violation" of Metro's public health order.
He said the Metro Public Health Department is investigating the party and those who organized it.
My office is working with Metro Codes, Metro Legal, and Public Health to investigate this weekend’s party on Fern Avenue and those responsible for organizing it. The party was in clear violation of Metro’s Modified Phase Two public health order. We are taking action. (1/3)— Mayor John Cooper (@JohnCooper4Nash) August 3, 2020
Cooper said Metro Codes confirmed that The Fashion House is an active LLC operating out of 21 B Fern Avenue. They have since posted a "Stop Use Order" on the property for "illegally operating a commercial business in a residential district."
Promoted as the big unveiling for The Fashion House intended for photo shoots, people showed up to Saturday’s party to snap photos and even get tattoos.
MNPD said officers wrote citations for those parked illegally in neighboring driveways, but they did not write any citations related to the coronavirus mask mandate.
