3) Presentation from King Woods for the proposed expansion of Powerhouse Bar at 1716 North Highland Avenue with owner Ken Jones. Proposed expansion is into vacant comic store as explained by Mr. Woods. Desired hours of operation are from 11 AM to 2 AM 7 nights per week. No live entertainment was asked for. Concerns brought up by Chair Woolsey and Business Chair Thor Lee the parking situation in Hollywood & Highland area including the normal lot for this establishment currently under-going construction as a residential building and none being available the H & H Center due to the profusion of Entitlements already present there-in. No parking plan with a signed lease was presented and according to Housing Chair Paul Ramsey this was in-adequate for consideration. Discussion then arose as to the stated purpose of adding restaurant functions. The business plan for this consists of “American Food” and will be discussed in greater detail in the next meeting. Motion to table pending resolution of these items made, seconded, and passed.

Chair Woolsey mentioned there was a previous initiative from council office to remove them and that Area 3 and the HHWNC Board voted to recommend keeping and repairing them.
