DISCUSSION
On March 24, 2015, a motion was made by Councilmember Austin, seconded by Councilmember Richardson, to sustain the appeals from Laurie Angel and Chuck Fowler in response to the January 15, 2015 decision of the Planning Commission to accept a Categorical Exemption (CE 14-114) and approve a Conditional Use Permit (Application No. 1409-13) to allow the sale of beer and wine for off-site consumption at an existing gas station convenience store (Exhibit A - Council Letter of March 24, 2015).  The motion to sustain the appeals passed 8-0.  As directed, new findings have been prepared to reflect denial of the requested Conditional Use Permit (Exhibit B - Denial Findings).
