1.  6541 Hollywood Blvd –  David Jarrett reported that the Planning Dept. should be ready to schedule a hearing date on the CUP application regarding Jane's House for some time in April after he submits a revised application for the environmental clearance in order to reflect the prior conditions applicable to the property because it is an  historical property.

The committee discussed 1727 Houston Hospitality's application for the Type 47 CUP, including confirming that the Houston brothers still wished to propose hours of operation from 11 am to 2 am daily for selling a full line of alcoholic beverages at Jane's House.

The committee voted unanimously to recommend to the HHWNC board that the board should suport 1727 Houston Hospitality's application.  While the committee remains concerned about (i) potential noise emanating from the rear portion of Jane's House, and (ii) access for emergency vehicles, the committee believes those issues can be worked out by the applicants with the Planning Department.
