What to expect: City staff has recommended 16 parking spots, reduced
from 24, with the addition of three compact parking spots. Also, the
staff has added a modification to allow a 1-foot-by-3-inch trash bin to
be built in front of the building.
GOLD COAST COUNSELING CENTER
Bruce H. Corzine, the owner and applicant, wants to legalize
counseling and instructional services for drug and alcohol abuse within
an existing industrial building at 2950 Airway Ave.
Though the 2,239-square-foot suite hosted counseling services since
1978, it wasn't discovered until recently that there are no records
permitting such a use.
What to expect: Staff has recommended the commission adopt a
resolution subject to conditions for the center that staff feels most
resembles a trade or vocational school. Gold Coast Counseling is licensed
by the state to provide counseling services for drug and alcohol abuse.
Staff has visited the site and doesn't anticipate any parking problems as
a result of the center, contrary to a neighboring tenant's concerns.
CHEVRON GAS STATION
Applicant Andrea Fiscus of G&M Oil wants to convert a
1,402-square-foot photo processing business into a convenience store at
the existing Chevron station at 195 E. 17th St.
What to expect: Staff recommends the commission allow the conversion.
Sales of alcoholic beverages would not be permitted at the store because
the closest residences are 300 feet away. The existing cashier pay booth
would be removed, but the gas pumps and canopy would remain unchanged.
