WRITTEN REQUEST TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION

 

WOLFIE'S PLAZA PARKING DEVIATION

 

Leonard Chackman, 17914 Lake Estates, Boca Raton, owner of Wolfie's Plaza, asked the city why Ms. Gloria St. Germaine's request for a technical parking deviation for Wolfie's Plaza was denied.  A change of use was requested, but denied due to a lack of parking.  The students at the manicure school would be few and he did not believe parking would be a problem.  The section of the plaza is the northwest side of building.

 

Ms. St. Germaine continued that the school would be in session in the evenings and weekends.

 

Mayor Capellini advised that the City Commission does not rehear applications.

 

Mr. Gerald Ferguson clarified that because the application was voted upon and denied, the City Commission must vote to reconsider the application.  If that happened, the application would be readvertised and reheard.

 

Mayor Capellini stated there was another technical parking deviation on that property.

 

Mr. Ferguson said there were several.

 

City Attorney Andrew Maurodis advised that a written request to reconsider the application would have to be submitted, brought to the City Commission by one of the commissioners and voted upon favorably by the commission in order for the City Commission to hear the application again.

 

Mr. Chackman said he has not received complaints regarding parking problems.

 

Mr. Maurodis reiterated the process and directed Mr. Chackman to send a written letter to Commissioner Trinchitella if he was interested in having the application reconsidered.

STOP SIGN IN ROYAL KING BUFFET ALLEY

 

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked that a stop sign be place in the alley west of Royal King Buffet.  The alley is dangerous.

 

PUBLIC TO BE HEARD

 

Anthony Parks, representing Wild About Wheels, asked if the permitted uses in B2 zoning districts could be amended so that Wild About Wheels could do auto mechanical at their location.  Currently the store sells wheels and accessories.  The owner would like to change the property and beautify it.  Very little additional equipment would be needed.  He gave a petition to the City Commission with 106 signatures supporting the change.  He asked if this request could be accommodated.

 

Mayor Capellini advised that he could go through the normal rezoning process or ask for a conditional use.

 

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked him to go through the normal Planning and Zoning process.

 

City Attorney Andrew Maurodis explained that he wanted the permitted uses of the zoning category changed, which would require an amendment to the Land Development Code (LDC).

 

Gerald Ferguson, Director of Planning and Growth Management, pointed out that an amendment to the LDC would only come at the direction of the City Commission.

 

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked that Mr. Ferguson look into the matter and refer his findings to the City Manager.  The City Manager could then forward a recommendation to the commission.  The City Commission did not have the information to make an informed decision at this time.

 

Mr. Maurodis recommended that Mr. Parks submit a detailed letter to Mr. Ferguson explaining why such a change would be beneficial to the city prior to Mr. Ferguson moving forward.

 

Sylvia Poitier asked for clarification of Mr. Parks request.  She asked if he was interested in performing realignments and change tires. 

 

Mr. Maurodis responded that it is currently a prohibited use and it would be a lengthy process involving extensive public input prior to adoption.

 

ADJOURNMENT

 

The meeting was adjourned at 8:35 PM.
