from this section of Hollywood Blvd. at Night to which Mr. Fox and Dolce Group CEO
Lonnie Moore responded that many establishments exist on this section of the street
and they feel like they are being blamed for other people’s clientele. Chair Woolsey
explaned the history of this entitlement from the original application in 2003 through
Dolce Group picking it up a year later and completing it. He then remarked that the
