October newsletter and meeting announcement



6:30pm – Member socializing
7:00pm – Meeting begins

Our upcoming Oct 9 meeting should be very interesting and interactive.

  • The relatively new El Tequilas Restaurant/Bar at 2836 N Lincoln will introduce themselves and will be requesting a “PPA” license, Public Place of Amusement, to allow for trivia nights and Mariachi music on weekends. This is a voting issue.
  • Also, the city is revamping the beleaguered 311 call center service. A discussion, a proposal and a real chance by residents to offer input will be conducted by reps from the Dept of Innovation & Technology.
  • Finally, the owners of an unusual sized lot at 2930 N Lakewood will be presenting their Single Family House proposal. They are requesting a zoning change from RS-3 to RS-3.5 to accommodate a 15% larger house on a very undersized non-conforming lot. This will be another advisory voting issue.
