On the Agenda: Colorado Boulevard getting a new curfew; Echo Park wets its whistle; new Mt. Washington homes

On The Agenda


This week’s line up of community meetings and public hearings  includes a measure to allow Colorado Boulevard businesses to stay open later, a beer and wine application in Echo Park and new home construction in Mount Washington.  Before You Go: It’s a good idea to check with organizations to find out if meeting items and times have been changed or postponed.

Eagle Rock

An amendment to the Colorado Boulevard Specific Plan will be reviewed by the City Council. This amendment would remove the restrictive hours of operation for businesses on Colorado Boulevard, allowing them to operate past the hours of 9 p.m.  Tuesday, Oct. 22

Echo Park

Lot 1 Cafe, 1527 Sunset Boulevard, has applied for a full liquor license to accompany an expansion into an existing beauty salon next door. This would bring their a total number of seats 120, including 30 seats spilling to the exterior. Lot 1  is also requesting new hours of operation, 7 a.m. to 4 a.m. daily, as opposed to the standard 11 p.m. cutoff. Lot 1 Cafe also wants  an exemption from the required 14 parking spaces for this zoning area. Wednesday, October 22.

Mount Washington

Plenty going on at the planning and land use committee.  On their agenda: new single family residence at 3814 Glenalbyn Drive; construction on Cross Street baffles local residents due to outdated notices; cellular tower at Pentecostal Church on Marmion Way is not well received by local residents. Monday, Oct. 20.


November 4 is just around the corner. Peruse the issues with this 2014 General Election voting guide.

  1. Echo Park, Lot 1 Cafe expansion is an integral topic on the agenda that cannot be ignored. This culinary cornerstone of Sunset Blvd. continues to thrive despite the poorly managed and irresponsible businesses shouldering its location that brag the two things that Lot 1 Cafe should have already been given since day one-full liquor license and room to roam. It’s honestly a no-brainer to award Eileen Leslie’s perpetual and unwavering attempts via public hearings, town meetings, and other legal compliance with expansion and competitive offerings. Lot 1 Cafe is the most responsible and accommodating establishment in Echo Park and I know that Leslie’s ownership and operational prowess will ensure the safety of any anticipated fears regarding approving the aforementioned application. Let’s be real.

  2. As a local performer and music lover Lot 1 is a cornerstone of our local community. All are welcome to share their creative talents in an open way, and Lot 1 doesn’t make any money off of these acts and local artists, they really just do it for the love. The place is so popular that is gets filled up quickly and people end up spilling out into the street. With the expansion there would be more room for people inside, so that would definitely be a benefit for all. They already have a great food and beer selection, so I don’t see why they can’t offer cocktails as well.
