"A new business would like to open in the Clarendon Park area, but would need a special use permit based on the current zoning. Alderman Cappleman would like your input.
The proposal is to open a wine shop/liquor store in the former Salvation Army building on the southeast corner of Broadway and Sunnyside. The proposed store would front Broadway. To do this, the owner would need to apply for a "special use" to solely sell liquor, which is not permitted by current zoning.
Alderman Cappleman would like to know where the Clarendon Park neighborhood stands on this, and has scheduled a meeting at his office for Thursday, May 1, from 6-7 pm, for us to meet with the prospective owner. Please come and share your thoughts. If you cannot make the meeting, please contact the Alderman's office to share your perspective on this issue.
Looking forward to seeing you on May 1 at the Alderman's office."
UU Note: This is a zoning change, not a lifting of the packaged liquor moratorium that exists on Broadway north of Sunnyside. If the "special use" is approved, it would affect this property only and this business only. It would not allow any other businesses on the street to be able to sell packaged liquor or lift the existing moratorium that exists on Broadway north of Sunnyside.
