With the goal of supporting two industries hit hardest by the pandemic, the Baltimore County executive aims to change zoning rules and set up a permitting process for more restaurants and bars to host live music. The NOTE Act — it stands for New Opportunities for Tourism and Entertainment — would enable hundreds more restaurants and bars to hold live musical entertainment by amending zoning rules in areas where live music is currently prohibited. It’s modeled after a 2019 bill that changed zoning rules in Catonsville and Arbutus.
