CASE 1699 – VALERIE GILLION

Mayor Capellini advised this was the time and place scheduled for a public hearing on the following:

Bruce Parpell, speaking on Valerie Gillion's behalf, said that a private organization wanted to use this property to meet about cleaning up the neighborhood.

Mr. Ferguson reminded the Commission that this was a conditional use approval and a change of use, which meant that the applicant had to meet certain criteria to the Commission's satisfaction for approval. He commented that the Commission's back-up packet contained little information about the organization and its intentions other than the property was to be used as a social hall. He then directed the Commission's attention to a report submitted by the Chief George Brennan, BSO District X, relating to a high amount of call for service activity to this property. Based on the occupational license form and the BSO report, staff recommended to deny the application because the basis for conditional use had not been met.

A motion to close the public hearing made by Commissioner Noland was seconded by Commissioner Shaddow. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioners Shaddow and Clarke-Reed, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed told the applicant that based on the BSO report she could not allow the organization to open at that site. She asked that the group continue its search for an alternative location.

Mr. Parpell inquired as to the process once a new location was found.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed responded he would have to come before the Commission once again for approval.

Mr. Parpell commented that it would be difficult for the group to come up with the $175 application fee and requested that it be waived.

A motion to deny and waive a future application fee made by Commissioner Clarke-Reed was seconded by Commissioner Shaddow. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioners Shaddow and Clarke-Reed, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

APPLICATION 89-B1-91 REVISION 2 AND CASE NO. 1695, MURPHY’S RANCH HOUSE BY DONALD E. BRYAN

Mayor Capellini advised this was the time and place scheduled for a public hearing on the following:

Mr. Ferguson explained the application was for a revision to an existing site plan to add 120 square feet of deck to the east side of the building and to convert the existing deck on the south side to customer service area. This would require seven additional parking spaces. The applicant has agreed to enter into a developer's agreement for a technical deviation at a cost of $6,000.00 per space. The application was approved by the Development Review Committee, Community Appearance Board and the Planning and Zoning Board.

Ms. Lois Pallaria advised that she and her husband owned the Ranch House and were in the process of rearranging the seating and are adding no space to the south side of the building. On the east side of the building, no space was being added, but they were replacing the wooden deck destroyed by Hurricane Irene. They are recouping the 22 spaces they lost by closing the breakfast bar and moving them to the outside deck which would probably be used as a take-out stand. The new configuration would give the restaurant 131 seats and they are approved for 138.

City Attorney Andrew Maurodis advised Ms. Pallaria that she could introduce any witnesses or documentary evidence at this point.

Ms. Pallaria declined.

Tony Hearst, Board of Directors, Tierra East, said the condominium was concerned with the enlargement of the service area. She said there is a wooden deck and in October, they had about 24 seats outside and a pass-through bar. The concerns of Tierra East are mostly with regard to noise level and pedestrian traffic along the roadway.

Ms. Pallaria rebutted that there is no wooden deck.

Mr. Ferguson clarified that there is a 120 square foot addition to the east that is existing, but it was never approved. The east deck under the canopy was approved for seating by the Commission in 1995. A variance was approved for two parking spaces before 1995.

Commissioner Noland remarked that the only seating on the south side of the building was two concrete picnic benches. She did not recall additional seating being approved for that location.

Mr. Ferguson said that was correct.

Mayor Capellini asked the applicant to explain the hardship and how she complies with the provisions of the conditional use section of the Land Development Code. He also asked Mr. Ferguson if staff had anything further to add.

Mr. Ferguson commented the landscaping would need to meet the code after construction and reiterated his comments concerning the developer's agreement.

Commissioner Shaddow stated it was unclear what was and was not approved at the Ranch House.

Barry Gorsun, Vice President of Board of Directors for Tierra East, said that he is confused by the discussion. There is a deck with seating, although he did not believe it sat 22 people. He explained that the pass-through hot dog stand is now a full-liquor bar which encompasses the entire pass through area. He said that he concurred with Ms. Hearst's opinion about the noise level. Mr. Gorsun does not believe the area needs another bar. He requested that the Commission truly understand what was there prior to making a decision.

Mayor Capellini questioned whether they could have a bar at that location.

Mr. Ferguson replied it was zoned properly and a bar is an accessory use of a restaurant.

Mr. Gorsun said the nature of the business has changed significantly from how it is being represented.

Commissioner Shaddow asked if there were any code violations.

Mr. Ferguson responded the seating on the south side was never approved. The owner was cited by Code Enforcement. The applicant is before the Commission now to seek approval. He visited the property three weeks ago and the seats were gone.

Ms. Pallaria summarized when she took ownership of the property, she was told there were three different seating occupancies. She took the least, 138 seats, and used this number to apply to the state. She deliberately stopped using the counter in order to use those seats on the south deck. She has not increased the seating, but decreased it by nine seats. The deck on the front was approved for 32 seats and was part of the 138 seats. She is trying to convert the indoor seating to outdoor by removing the 20 seats from the breakfast bar and use them on the outside patio. The CAB asked that they change the railing to something more attractive and they would go along with it because they want tables and chairs.

Commissioner Shaddow asked Ms. Pallaria if she understood that indoor and outdoor seating are two separate approvals.

Ms. Pallaria replied she did not know that it was a separate approval. She thought if she kept the amount of the total seats the same or below, that she would not need additional approval. She said she had no intention of having a late night bar or even a jukebox. She said she has approval from the Department of Hotels and Hospitality for the outdoor seating.

Mayor Capellini added that the approval was contingent upon approval by the local planning authority, which in this case was the City Commission.

Commissioner Shaddow remarked the application asked for additional customer service area and not outdoor seating. This was creating confusion.

Ms. Pallaria said that tables and chairs outside were part of additional customer service areas.

Commissioner Shaddow responded that the customer service area was the pass-through window from which they could bus and wait.

Mr. Ferguson stated that when the deck and pass-through were approved in 1990, the approval specifically stated that there was not to be a customer service area.

Commissioner Shaddow asked if the pass-through changing into a liquor bar was ever brought up at any of the meetings.

Mr. Ferguson answered no.

Commissioner Noland added if the area was serving alcohol, the area had to be contained.

Mr. Ferguson said that the application was confusing because of various issues such as the number of seats, customer service area and parking. There are different codes that apply to capacity such as the building code, fire code and the land development code. Zoning for parking purposes is divided into two categories: customer service area and all other area. Customer service area is the area which the customer has access to and has food service. Our Land Development Code says it is based on square footage for parking purposes. Because it is a conditional use, the applicant is now requesting to add additional seating on the east side of the building. At the Planning and Zoning Board, Ms. Pallaria stated that she would have seating on the south side, but would not increase the overall total of seats the restaurant has.

Commissioner Shaddow asked where in her back-up it stated that there would be 22 outdoor seats on the south side. She further asked if that would be an additional approval.

Ms. Pallaria said she was told that the amount of seating had nothing to do with the amount of parking.

Mr. Ferguson advised that the conditional use requirement was triggered by when there is an excess of 24 seats, but they already had thirty-some seats. Therefore, anything they would add on would be a conditional use. The advertisement says in excess of 24 seats. There was no specification in the application requirement to specify the amount of seats.

A motion to close the public hearing made by Commissioner Noland was seconded by Commissioner Clarke-Reed. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioners Shaddow and Clarke-Reed, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

because the applicant did not meet the conditional use criteria, a motion to deny made by Commissioner Noland was seconded by Commissioner Shaddow. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioners Shaddow and Clarke-Reed, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

NEEDS ASSESSMENT FOR ROLLER HOCKEY RINK

Director of Community Services Vincent Kendrick advised that roller hockey is the fastest growing sport over the last 7 - 8 years in the United States. Additionally, more people in the South are becoming interested in hockey. South Florida in particular has a very popular professional hockey team. Also, the equipment has come down in price. The rink would be multi-purpose, allowing other sports to be played on it as well. The cost would be about $164,000.00. Staff recommends building a regulation size rink in Pioneer Park because there is demand for it. A marketing program would be developed to support the program.

Mayor Capellini complimented Mr. Kendrick on his comprehensive report. He suggested that Community Services work closely with Commissioner Noland to avoid the public relation problems the city had when the rink at the Villages of Hillsboro Park was constructed and initially used.

A motion to approve by Commissioner Noland was seconded by Commissioner Shaddow. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioners Shaddow and Clarke-Reed, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

Mayor Capellini stated the applicant was seeking a variance from the provisions of Section 98-75 of the Deerfield Beach Land Development Code in order to allow a fence which will be located 2.5 feet from the side property line rather than 15 feet as required by Code at 4193 NW 4th Court.
