If this is what Diamond Bar wants, then your city will be just a bunch of old residents that do nothing to have a good time. Robots. Apprently the council doesn't dance or like any type of live entertainment. Who would want to live there? Do the right thing, this isn't a third world country. I'm almost sure this is coming from a small very unhappy group that doesn't like to do anything but stay home and nit sweaters. I guess everyone will have to spend their money elsewhere.

It's so good to see that some communities hear the voice of the MAJORITY of their residents and take action! Diamond Bar has been a quiet, respectable town with CLASS for years, and this just goes to show that they won't lower their standards for the harrasment of local bad-mannered hooligans, drunks, prostitute like dancers, and drug dealers, and the people in government they pay off to do their evil bidding.

I spent years going to clubs and dancing.... and I can say for a fact that they are not wrong in their aasumptions about such places. I've seen it first hand for decades, and would choose instead to go to places for dancing that were not completely full of a bunch of reprobates. It seems these days, no one cares about what the majority of TAX PAYING LAW ABIDING citizens think, only what the loudest town crier and their law-breaking hooligan friends who cry the loudest think.

Good job Diamond Bar, that you don't want to be associated with people of low character and slime! Keep up the good work! And all this from an independent, VOTING, single woman in her early thirties WITH NO KIDS. Some of us young folk still care about values, character, and the truth; NOT debauchery and foul-mouthed, disrespectful slimeball behavior.

Why are the choices either a boring night or a party-hard pukefest? Why not have a modern, low-key lounge with chill DJ music so friends can meet up, have some drinks, and enjoy each other's company?

Once again, thanks so much for helping the small guy trying his hardest to stay in busines. How many of you out there work 60 or more hours a week?
do you help these restaurants with w.c. and all the other ins. out there, that they have to pay just to keep the doors open, I think not.

Well that's brilliant, now there is going to be more drunk drivers driving further to get home from their destinations. In England there is a pub on every corner so no one drinks and drives, they just walk to the corner pub to get a drink, dance, watch a band, and take in a game. Only in southern California do we not have a viable public transportation system that runs 24/7 but we ban bars in neighborhoods so people must travel for nightlife and drive drunk, and we wonder why drunks are killing people on the road. Brilliant!!! I say just Brilliant!

Someone should check the number of calls for service for house parties in Diamond Bar. You will be shocked by the numbers. All these type of actions do if force parties underground. Now you will have an unsupervised house party, with underage drinking, and no security if a fight breaks out, in a residential neighborhood. Don't be surprised by the next teenage shooting at a house party. It is this type of narrow minded, government you can only get at a city council level. Generally one trying to impose the view of morality on others!

I guess the city doesn't want to lose the marijuana business. Isn't this the city that homes were being used to grow marijuana??? Don't want the Competition...
