From Egg Rolls to Aces
I guess the Pettigrew/Cathedral neighborhood was a bit surprised when this popped up on the agenda;
Petition: CU-014556-2021: Conditional Use Permit for an On-sale alcoholic beverage establishment within 500 feet of a sensitive use located at 523 W 10TH ST.
Notice staff has stayed out of making a recommendation;
While the zoning is appropriate for an on-sale alcohol use, staff are reluctant to provide a
recommendation as the subject area has enough societal challenges with such establishments in
the immediate vicinity. Management of this facility plays a pivotal in being a good neighbor by
educating staff, enforcing policies, and being proactive with law enforcement.
Well that is certainly refreshing, they shouldn’t be recommending approval for any project.
Many in the neighborhood have asked me how this even got on the agenda. This will be an interesting one to watch, but if I was a betting man it won’t pass.
