Case Notes


The applicant has revised their application to extend the hours of operation and address LAMC restrictions which deal with Commercial Corners/Mini-Malls.

At the request of Staff, it was requested that the applicant product a study of the other restaurants and bars in the immediate area.  My request was founded on the fact that it is very hard for new restaurants to succeed and that the original hours of operation requested seemed to be very early which might create a negative disadvantage on the applicant to have a fair chance to operate as other similar businesses do in the area.  As a result the applicant produced a study that clearly shows ALL other restaurants/bars in the area are indeed entitled to be open until 2AM daily.

The applicant is requesting to use the existing office building for a retail store.  The products which will be offered in the store will either be produced by the applicants business or used to promote the brand(s) of the business (logo items such as tee-shirts, beer mugs, etc.).  LAMC requires findings to be made when a retail store will be located on a corner.  These revisions to the application address these City requirements and will not have negative impacts on the neighboring community based on the overall project description in the Staff Report.  Note: Staff is recommending NO signage which might be considered as advertising and is visible from the exterior of the any portion of this project will be allowed.
