November 5, 2018, City Council Regular Meeting
22. Motion to Conditionally Allow Certain Special Uses on 1650 E Victory Drive (Petitioner: Richard Mopper for Tafina LLC)
Strategic Priority
Neighborhood Revitalization

The Mayor and Aldermen conditionally approved this special use request, while allowing the operation to close at 10 instead of 9, following a zoning hearing at the October 25, 2018 City Council Meeting.  The action being considered now is the approval of an ordinance for the conditional special use.

The petitioner, Richard Mopper for Tafina LLC, is requesting approval (File No. 18-003858-ZA) of a special use within a PUD-IS-B (Planned Unit Development-Institutional) Zoning District. The requested special use is an assembly hall (Section 8-3025(b) Use #20a). Section 8-3002 defines an assembly hall as “a facility available for use by the general public for meetings, parties, events and activities of a similar nature.  Such use may include the use of any outdoor area onsite and any kitchen facilities associated with the use".


Approval with the following conditions:

  1. The restaurant and assembly hall use shall be accessory to the existing antique store.  A restaurant or an assembly hall as principal uses shall not be permitted.

  2. Any building addition established for the restaurant and assembly hall use shall not exceed 1,000 square feet.

  3. The restaurant shall have a maximum of 49 seats.

  4. The assembly hall use shall have a maximum number of 156 occupants.  However, if the number of parking spaces is increased, after review by the City, the parking calculation shall be one (1) parking space for every four (4) occupants.

  5. The hours of operation of the antique store, restaurant, and assembly hall shall not precede 9:00 a.m. or exceed 9:00 p.m.

  6. The restaurant shall not include a drive-thru.

  7. The assembly hall use may include the use of any outdoor area onsite and any kitchen facilities that are associated with such use, including a mobile food service unit.

  8. The restaurant and assembly hall uses may sell, serve, or allow the provision of alcoholic beverages.

  9. The assembly hall and/or restaurant shall not operate until a site plan has been reviewed and approved through the City’s Site Development Permit Review Process exhibiting that all development standards including setbacks, buffers, and required parking have been met.

  10. This Ordinance incorporates the relevant conditions that were approved under MPC File No. 98-12106-S on July 2, 1998 and File No. 15-003655-ZA on March 15, 2016.
