to include an upstairs retail establishment. barl/ounge space, previously used as a It meets all standards but will require
variance from BZBA for parking requirements. Mr. Martin said
that a lot of people are waiting for tables in the restaurant and they want to use the upstairs space as a waiting area, ca. 900
sq. ft. Pool tables will use about one-third of the space. Pool
tables are permitted depending on magnitude of game area, and Mr. Reyazi thinks one-third should be maximum area.
Members discussed parking, and most parking will be in the evening, when more space is available. The ordinance requires
less parking space for restaurants than for retail space, and the judgment rests with the Village Planner, who prefers the situa- tion go through BZBA. Regarding safety, Mr. Martin has checked with the fire marshal and he gives his approval as long as there are two entrances.
MS. ROBERTSON MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION WITH THE STIPU- LATION THAT THE GAME AREA NOT EXCEED 40 PER CENT OF THE 900 SQ. FT AREA AND PENDING APPROVAL OF PARKING VARIANCE BY BZBA. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS APPROVED BY

Work Session:
Brezina Construction Services
Mr. Reyazi stated that Brezina Construction wishes to discuss a site development in the Parnassus Village Condominiums. Mr. Brezina stated that the original site plan (ca. 1984) included a structure that was never built, and he is seeking permission to build it. Mr. Reyazi is not clear about all the
legal issues, but approval is required by GPC because it is in the PUD. Mr. Reyazi has been looking for the original plan and
appears to have found it, but is not sure. Mr. Brezina stated that it will be compatible with other units in the Parnassus Village. Legal questions, such as frontage and whether this is in the TCOD and whether the plan is the approved plan, will be discussed with Mr. Hurst, Law Director. Mr. Myers wondered
whether the original plan can be modified or is a new plan required. It is not certain how much the design will change.
Consensus said it will be OK to build the unit but more information is needed. There have been no negative written
comments from neighbors. Mr. Brezina needs to work out any
restrictions with the condominium association. Mr. Reyazi added
that the closer the Brezina plan is to the original plan, the sounder legal grouds he will rest on. Compatibility is
important.
