Subject: (EXCP-10-14-2313) Special Exception Use request to operate a Restaurant as a Special Exception Use at 222 7th Street.

Mike Milligan has submitted an application for the Special Exception Use cited above. The property is located in an HIST (Historic) zoning district. The site for the proposed restaurant was previously occupied by a restaurant. The purpose of the Special Exception Use is to allow for the operation of a restaurant in the HIST zoning district:

There will be no impact to the transportation system, nor will there be any impact to pedestrian safety. The height, size and location of the proposed structure will be compatible with other structures on neighboring properties. The applicant is seeking to reuse the former Café 222 as a restaurant. This is now a permitted use in the HIST District per Ordinance 15-6 as adopted on 2/10/2015.

The Planning Advisory Commission recommended Approval at the May 06, 2015 meeting.

The Planning Department recommends that the Council Approves the use because the application for a Special Exception use meets the criteria for approval.
