Zoning Administrator Update
On September 7, the Zoning Administrator conducted a public hearing to consider a request for a minor use permit to serve beer and wine (no hard alcohol) at the California Caviar Company tasting room located at 1403 Bridgeway. The hearing was well attended by interested parties in opposition and in favor of the permit. The majority of public testimony related to concerns about the potential impacts of the service of beer and wine in proximity to the Sparrow Creek Montessori School located at 304 Caledonia Street, directly abutting the rear of the subject property to the west.
The Zoning Administrator received and evaluated public comments and approved the minor use permit with strict conditions, including: limiting the hours of operation (4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.), defining the scope of the permit authorizing the service of beer and wine to within the interior of the tasting room located on the ground floor which faces Bridgeway, and identifying compliance with all Alcoholic Beverage Control licensing requirements. The Zoning Administrator's decision is final unless appealed to the Planning Commission within ten days of the decision date.
