|June 22, 2017 City Council Regular Meeting (Amended June 20, 2017)|
Motion To Amend the Zoning Ordinance Regarding Restaurants Serving Alcoholic Beverages In The RIP-D Zoning District (Petitioner, Harold Yellin)
The Mayor and Aldermen approved this rezoning request (MPC File No. 17-002256-ZA) following a zoning hearing at the June 8, 2017 City Council Meeting.
The petitioner, Harold Yellin, is requesting that the Savannah Zoning Ordinance (Sec. 8-3025(a)) be amended to permit use #65(b) Restaurants, sit-down or cafeteria, which does serve alcoholic beverages in the RIP-D zoning district. The text amendment, as proposed, would permit restaurants to serve spirits in the RIP-D district where they are already permitted to sell beer and wine. Because this action does not change the character of the use, there should be no detrimental impacts created by this proposed amendment.
The Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of this rezoning request at its Regular Meeting on May 16, 2017
Recommend Approval of Ordinance To Amend Part 8, Chapter 3, Zoning, To Amend Article A. (Generally): Section 8-3025(A) (C&R Use Schedule) To Add Use # 65(B) Restaurant, Sit-Down Or Cafeteria That Does Serve Alcoholic Beverages, As A Permitted Use In The RIP-D (Residential – Institutional – Professional – Medium Density) Zoning Classification; To Repeal All Other Ordinances In Conflict Herewith And For Other Purposes.
Shane Corbin, Zoning Administrator
