Rick Ross Wins Showdown Over Car Show … County Approves Permit
5/26/2023 11:50 AM PT
Rick Ross won his showdown with Fayette County over his 2nd annual car show … because officials reversed course and issued him a permit.
The country’s director of planning and zoning sent a letter to Rick on Friday, informing him the permit for the upcoming event is now approved … with certain conditions.
In the letter, obtained by TMZ, Fayette County county officials say Rick’s event can’t operate for more than 2 weeks, he has to get the county fire marshal’s approval for any tents, he has to provide off-street parking and outdoor lighting has to shut off by 10 PM.
The about-face comes one week after Rick joined us on “TMZ Live” and declared his car show was full speed ahead despite being denied a permit.
The hip hop mogul hosted the car show last year without a permit, but some neighbors complained and he brought in event planning experts to help for this year’s show, which is going down June 3 at his Promised Land estate in Fayetteville, GA.
Rick’s neighbors sued to stop the show from coming back to his property, but on Wednesday a judge ruled Ricky Rozay was free to try and get a permit … and now he’s got one.
RR’s attorney, Leron Rogers, tells TMZ … “Rick Ross and his team are excited to get the administrative hurdle behind us and look forward to a great event on June 3, 2023.”
