On the Agenda: Montecito Heights’ Flat Top; too many liquor licenses on York Boulevard

On The Agenda

On the Agenda this week: Union Station Master Plan, a Highland Park 99-Cents Store wants to sell beer, and budget committee in Arroyo Seco. It’s a good idea to check with organizations to find out if meeting items and times have been changed or postponed. Here are some of this week’s upcoming meetings:

Highland Park

  • The Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council has opposed a person-to-person license to sell beer, wine and distilled spirits at the 99 Cents Only Store. The council gave a number of reasons why its opposed to the selling of alcoholic beverages at the dollar store, one being a saturation of liquor licenses on York Boulevard (about 30), and the fact that the store is within 600 feet of two elementary schools. One of the more interesting bullet points to come out of the issue was a report from LAPD.  Police provided a summary of two years of calls to the store in no particular order: Six incidents of Grand Theft Auto, shoplifting, two counts of felony vandalism, two of assaults with a deadly weapon, theft by trickery, burglary, battery and robbery.

Council District 14/Eagle Rock

  • Councilman Jose Huizar from Council District 14 has a motion to begin Stage One perimeter improvements to Union Station. The report phase would see cooperation between the Planning Department, Metro, LADOT and the Bureau of Engineering. Tuesday, February 17.
  • The Colorado Boulevard Design Review Board will consider details on a male and female ADA compliant restroom and the addition of 712 sq-ft. of retail space at an existing gas station at 1871 Colorado Boulevard. Thursday, February 19.

Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council

  • The Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council’s Budget and Finance Committee is looking for a secretary to tackle Planning and Land Use Committee issues. Tuesday, February 17.
  • The Recreation, Culture and Arts Committee in Arroyo Seco will be celebrating the acquisition of Flat Top in Montecito Heights at the end of February. This week’s committee meeting will discuss the future of the site – most likely outdoorsy activities. Also on that agenda are updates on Southwest Museum, the Lummis Home and Teatro Arroyo. Wednesday, February 18.
