TIF Meeting Monday May 11, 2009

"Yes, love, it's another TIF meeting. Must you go?"

There will be a meeting of the 53rd Street TIF Advisory Council this coming Monday, May 11, 2009, at Kenwood Academy, 5015 S. Blackstone, at 7PM.

The agenda will include the following:
  1. Harper Court Arts Council update -- Mary Anton, Harper Court Arts Council
  2. Cleanslate 2009 budget revision -- decrease from $157,000 to $150,000
  3. Zoning change request for 1350 E. 53rd St. by the Silliman Group, LLC, agent for the building owner, Kenwood Court, LLC.

The proposed zoning change is from B1-2 (Neighborhood Shopping District) to B3-2 (Community Shopping District). The application is being made, in part, so that future commercial tenants at the Subject Property" would be able to apply for City licenses that would, if approved, permit them to function as "General Restaurants" and defines a General Restaurant as "a restaurant in which alcoholic liquor may be served in conjunction with the primary activity (prepared food service) and in which live entertainment and dancing are permitted in completely enclosed areas. This is not possible under the current zoning.
