Public Hearing, Round Two

That’s right.  Because it was so much fun the first time, we’re having another public hearing regarding our conditional use permit.

The hearing will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, May 27, 2009 at 4:30 pm at:

Ramona Hall Community Center
4580 North Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90065

We would LOVE to have some supporters there to cheer us on, so please feel free to join us.  As usual, there will be other hearings on that day, so the start time for our hearing may be pushed slightly.  Just be aware of that, and maybe bring a book or magazine to read while we wait.

As many of you already know, our conditional use permit was approved earlier this year, after our original public hearing, but the decision was appealed by a nearby industrial property owner.  His concerns are that our tasting room will create parking problems on the street, and that it will become a hangout for local gangs.  Obviously, if you are reading this blog, you’re probably accuately aware of how unfounded these concerns are.  Unfortunately though we live in a giant city, run by a giant bureaucracy, and we are still subject to all of the outdated processes that the city continues to use.  Joy.

Anyway, we hope to see some of you there tomorrow, to push past this one last, big hurdle on the road to our opening day.  Cheers!

  1. aaaahh. I don’t get off work til 5. i’ll try my best to show love and support by getting stuck in traffic trying to get there. EAB ftw!!!!! (really, I’ll do my best to be there)

  2. What a moron. The idea that a business coming in, spending money, upgrading facilities, etc, is going to bring gangs into Glassell Park is ludicrous. The gangs are already there, so obviously whatever is currently happening in GP is really working to keep them out. So lets not let something that might bring non-gang people into the area. That would be counter-productive no? What an idiot. Why doesn’t he go over to Burbank and complain that GB is atracting gang members. I’m so mad.
