thanks >> thank you. any other public comment? >> hi i'm michael i'm the executive director for the district six. the applicant has come to one of our community meetings. we did inform them of the other community groups therapy told to go to other community groups they've done that. they've done what's been asked of them and they've obviously, the owners have other establishments so they know what they're getting into so - you know, i think the thing is your obligation is to go through a check list to meet the requirements so your due
2:01 pm
diligence has been met so it could be to our favor to approve the applicant and mitigate 31 any outstanding things you think are on the permit but they obviously seem to have all the things that are required. the district 6 is in favor of getting the permit their q and we looked to working with them in the next few years to make sure they stay as a good community partner the same way we did with the money arc. at the same time, we had the same kind of concerns of a night club in the area and they turned to be a good neighbor >> thank you.
2:02 pm
any more public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. and the matters with the commission and i have a question >> yeah. >> can you refresh my memory why this permit was not heard with the plays of entertainment a month ago. >> at the time the southern station had asked there be the permit continued to further discussion. was it just for further discussion between the police and the project sponsor? >> okay. thank you. >> officer chan representing the southern station. so two months ago back when this is on the agenda i requested a
2:03 pm
pony time. we had no security other than the general security plan. cateringing towards the operation but nothing towards the extend hours. from that time until now i made several attempts to contact the applicant the owner and i recently spoke with with him a few days ago >> did you make it? >> not exactly. >> what's missing. >> i received with the gentleman submitted so far as the updated security plan but average that that's the only thing i
2:04 pm
received. >> i'm sorry could you please repeat what i asked for besides this updated security plan. >> they sort of outlined how they want to facilitate the expended hours for example, escorting patrons to their cars by they doesn't exactly say how many people they were going to staff for their security. if you have 4 hundred and 90 patrons in the club and it gets out at 5:00 a.m. - and i thought i heard them as a it was 80 ratio and the events were for gaze so >> one to 80or you're talking about security guards i know
2:05 pm
though they, escort folks and patrol the outside area. >> do you feel it's the security guards job to escort everyone. >> no. we would like to see them operational and then if he were or if they were to do that we'll grant them one night >> so what you're concerned about is the fact that they haven't explained fully enough they've over which is not required to escort patrons to their cars. that's the thing you're most concerned about and when their gay nights which would be primarily men i'm assuming they would be escorting women to
2:06 pm
their cars and that brings the occupancy down to half. i don't understand the whole thing >> i think the whole thing is the communication has not been between the station and the owners or the operational commander. part of their security plan will be something we'll discuss. our only concern about the after hours in regards to what you look at it's part of on educational thing. my concern is the club is not open i haven't seen a lot of activities around the club and you can't why are we going to a club that t is not open to an after-hour permit. once the club opens that will be
2:07 pm
worked out between us to make the neighborhood save >> so i'd like to entertain a motion because we've heard public comment and police concerns there's not a list of conditions from the police department. are there? >> from the productive. >> oh. >> i'd like to move to approve this permit. >> is there a second? >> i'll second. >> is there any discussion about this between us not for anyone else in the room. commissioner and a okay. how many nights a week from until 4 correct? how many nights a week >> the permit is until 6 and any night of the week if there's
2:08 pm
no consequences added to it. >> i'd like to see conditions added to it. >> what kind of conditions commissioner? are you trying to restrict the hours or the day >> i understand the stations point where we granted the po e. and the place is still not open and during that time there was no attempt by the permit people to get in touch with the station to discuss further. which makes me a little bit uncomfortable. and so i would say place some stipulations if we're going to go ahead and precede with this >> such a they have to meet
2:09 pm
with the police? >> i'm sorry, i thought i'd make a suggestion to make this a little bit easier. because the commissioner is new. if i'm hearing you correctly as opposed to the limiting days or hours it maybe useful to consider a condition that applicant notify the station in advance of any use of their extended hours use of permits within a certain amount of days of the event to facilitate not just i mean occupies if you want to admonish them to continuing condition, you know, work with the police department but with respect to the use of the steentd hours permit sound like the plant doesn't intend to use
2:10 pm
it that often and to make sure their well in advance to stipulate before they use it and that might go to our concerns >> yes, thank you and so would you like to make an amendment from the amendment. a friendly one >> a friendly one. >> there's no such thing as a friendly amendment it's just on amendment. so what would you like to amend that that at the notify the station at least one week in advance, two weeks in advance >> that was 7 days written in the paperwork. >> okay. we'll make is a
2:11 pm
condition as well. the motion was made by you? >> yes and i accept the condition of notifying southern stationary week in advance. okay. and is the second okay with that >> let's vote. >> on the motion to approve the permit with the condition of notifying the station (calling names). >> if you don't mind i want to admonish you to go and talk to southern station. >> please, please and a like soon. >> trade cell phone numbers. is commissioner lee back? go get him back. we'll move onto the next agenda
