  1. Welcome and general comments.


  1. Considering approving minutes of prior committee meetings, including July 13, 2016 and November 10, 2016.


  1. Report/update on recent PLUM cases.


  1. 1770 North Highland – which is in HHWNC’s area 3 and City Council District 13.


7-Eleven has applied to the City’s Planning Department for a conditional use permit to operate a store/market at this site on a 24/7 basis. The City’s commercial corner rules otherwise would require the store/market to have much more limited operating hours.


7-Eleven made a presentation at a recent HHWNC area 3 committee meeting.  At the meeting, 7-Eleven said that it intended to not apply for a conditional use permit to sell any beer, wine or other alcoholic beverages at this store. There is a liquor store already operating in the same strip mall where the store/market would operate; the mall’s operator told the meeting that, under it’s lease, the liquor store has the exclusive right to sell beer, wine and other alcohol in this strip mall.


Sherrie Olson will be leading 7-Eleven’s presentation.


The City Planning Dept.’s case no. is ZA 2016-3719-CU.
