Cooper Restaurant Project Continues to Draw Heat

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2007 at 4:00 AM

State Rep. Paul Stanley (right) and city council candidate Brian Stephens look over plans for a controversial "Italian restaurant" under construction on Fischer Steel Road in Cordova. (Building is at rear of picture.)

A lack of windows in the restaurant, a project of strip club mogul Steve Cooper, has some residents worried the owner may try to pull a bait-and-switch and convert the building into a topless bar.

The issue was the topic of a heated discussion at a Cordova Leadership Council forum Thursday night that drew several hundred attendees.
