Cities are for cars, not restaurants. At least, that is what some LA Nimbys seem to believe:
According to the Beverly Wilshire Homes Association, Gold’s restaurant needs to obtain four more parking spaces in order to operate legally, which Gold’s team says will $12,000. The homeowners association is after Eva and other local restaurants because they take up parking in the area. In the case of Eva, their purchased, secured spaces are 1,000 feet from the restaurant instead of the required 750 feet, so the restaurant has to purchase some new spots or they’ll lose their liquor license.
Something is really wrong with the zoning code when free parking is a condition for holding a liquor license.
