Stanaland said owners of the Farmers Market went through similar issues when it opened as an event venue a couple years ago, but the problems were resolved, and it has the department's blessing as an alternative spot for the party and art show.
Sinnett said he is grateful for the last-minute offer by the Farmers Market, 311 S Klein, and a move of the art displays was under way Friday afternoon.
“There are a couple of things we need to address, but they're not completely stifling,” Sinnett said of the permit issues for reopening The Womb.
“If we address them in a timely fashion, there is hope for the future of The Womb. We're not giving up, we're not defeated. We want to make sure we're compliant, that we're looking out for people's safety, and that we have something that is sustainable.”
