Paul Chaney, Emmanuel Assembly of God <br /> <br />Planning Director William Woolard <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Council Members Gi1b, Lauber, Margett, Parry, Sae1id <br />None <br /> <br />On MOTION by Member Gi1b, seconded by Member Margett and carried <br />unanimously the minutes of the regular meeting of February 7, 1978 <br />were approved. <br /> <br />Planning Commission recommendation concerning a conditional use <br />permit for a restaurant at 14 E. Huntington Drive. This conditional <br />use permit had been granted by the Commission subject to compliance <br />with the Code for parking. The applicant appealed to this requirement <br />to the City Council and the Planning Director explained in detail <br />the circumstances; that it is proposed to construct a restaurant <br />building with a gross floor area which would require 21 parking <br />spaces and the applicant can provide only 13. Adjacent businesses <br />and parking spaces were explored. Some discussion held on the <br />possibility of the patrons or the employees of the proposed <br />restaurant using spaces in the Parking District on the north side <br />of Huntington Drive. <br /> <br />Mayor Sae1id declared the hearing open and the applicant stated in <br />part that as owner of the drive-in liquor store at 10 E. Huntington <br />Drive he could provide five additional spaces and he has access by <br />agreement to four spaces located behind the Professional Development <br />Company at 12 S. Santa Anita. He said if another Parking District <br />were to be formed on the south side of Huntington Drive he would <br />participate. Financing will be from private funds without the <br />assistance of the Redevelopment Agency. He felt the restaurant, <br />due to its attractive architecture, would enhance the subject area. <br />He also may purchase the liquor store property on which he has a <br />lease with an option to buy. <br /> <br />In answer to a question Mr. Turiace said in part that he had looked <br />at other property but found none he could afford and that he does <br />own the subject property. He also commented that when patrons park <br />in the alley on private property he sees that it is clean; that with <br />the present 13 spaces, the 4 behind the professional building and <br />the 5 for the liquor store he would meet the requirements. <br /> <br />Charles Neuberg, 1732 Vista Del Valle, said in part that a dinner <br />house is being contemplated which would overcome some of the present <br />objections; and that with the additional parking, as explained by <br />the applicant, the evening trade could be accommodated and that it <br />is hoped the lunch trade would come from the business people in the <br />area who could walk to the restaurant. He asked the City Council to <br />act favorably on:the appeal. <br /> <br />2-21-78 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
