At the request of the Franklin House, NENA is convening a special session meeting to continue discussion of CUP20-00028, a Special Exception application to operate a bar in a R3 residential zone.
Please note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, meeting will be held virtually via Zoom. Franklin House proprietors will have 10 minutes to present, and NENA Board members will have 10 minutes to ask questions, if needed. Other North End Neighborhood Association members* will be limited to 3 minutes of testimony each. Meeting will conclude no later than 8pm.
*To be considered a NENA member, you must live, work, or own a property/business within North End Neighborhood boundaries.
UPDATE: The Zoom meeting lasted about 2 hours. Over 40 neighbors participated, including board members. Both sides of the question were voiced, from several different angles. No official tally was taken because NENA does not make the ultimate decision. The board voted to send a supplemental letter to Planning & Zoning explaining the special session, without making any change to their prior support of the current R-3 residential use zoning where Franklin House is located.
