Liquor & Entertainment License Applications for 614 University Ave at ALRC on Wednesday

On Wednesday, Jan. 19, the Alcohol License and Review Committee will consider the applications for both a Class B Liquor License and a 21+ Entertainment License for Mom's Bar at 614 University Avenue. Andrew Greenwood is proposing both licenses for a new establishment at the former location of Karoake Kid. Mom's Bar will also be seeking a Conditional Use Permit for a nightclub in the downtown Alcohol Overlay District. Capacity is expected to be 50 and Mom's Bar proposes to close by midnight seven days a week.

He expects to open on approximately Feb. 7.

The Conditional Use Application could be at Plan Commission as soon as March 7.

Jan. 31 Neighborhood Meeting - New Redevelopment Proposal on State Street

Please join me for a virtual neighborhood meeting on Jan. 31 at 6:30pm for a first look at a proposed redevelopment on State Street. JD McCormick Properties proposes to demolish the three buildings at 428 through 444 State Street and construct a new a five-story, mixed-use building with 22 to 26 dwelling units and first floor commercial spaces. The developer will be seeking a Demolition Permit and will need approvals by the Urban Design Commission and Plan Commission, but formal applications have not yet been filed with the city.

The Mansion Hill District of Capitol Neighborhoods, Inc., (CNI), will form a steering committee after the Jan. 31 meeting, but I encourage you to attend this first meeting to learn more about the proposed redevelopment. The neighborhood steering committee will also provide opportunities to provide input on the proposal with the help of neighbors and the development team as they begin the city approval process.

You can join the virtual meeting using your computer, smartphone or tablet, or you can listen in via telephone. You will receive login information after registering here. If you can't attend the virtual meeting, it will be recorded and I will post a link to the recording in my Alder Updates. Please contact me if you have questions or input.

Note that due to redistricting that took effect on January 1, this location is now in District 2 that I represent.
