But what really packed the house: a conditional use permit application for a banquet hall, part of a restaurant still under construction at the northeast corner of Altadena Drive and Washington Boulevard
A large percentage of public comment opposed the banquet hall, concerned that additional traffic and noise would affect the quality of life in their residential neighborhood.
During public comment/input, 44 were against the CUP, and 14 in favor. Those in favor said our local area lacks facilities for parties and weddings, and that the community in general would benefit from greater commercial development.
The ATC voted unanimously against granting a CUP for the banquet hall; a letter will be sent to Regional Planning recommending denial.
