Background Information:

The Planning & Zoning Commission first approved a Conditional Use Permit for Freddy C’s Lounge in October 2018 for a period of one year. This permit became effective January 2019 after the issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy for the business. This CUP approval included a condition prohibiting speakers or amplified live music outdoors.

 

The applicant is requesting to expand the business 1050 square feet to encompass the rear suite which, was most recently occupied by Rooster’s Emporium. This indoor expansion would include a bathroom and additional seating for customers.

 

The applicant has also requested to be allowed to have outdoor amplified live music from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm on weekends. However, given the Police Department’s growing concerns with noise complaints in the area, staff is recommending that the previous restrictions for amplified noise remain.
