Will the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council vote to support Beer and Wine sales at the 7-11 Store on Broadway and Eastlake Ave.?
Will you force the 7-11 Corporate Office to keep their promise to the Lincoln Heights Community and vote yes on your motion, to deny them a license to add another choice for beer and wine sales near the likes of Gates Elementry, Lincoln High School, and Little Flower Pre-School? Will you show the community that you stand behind their collective voices that stated loud and clear that additional venues for the sale of alcohol, were unwanted, in this part of Lincoln Heights?
(f) Planning and Land Use
(1) Presentation by 7-11
(2) MOTION: The Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council accepts the review of condition compliance submitted by the 711 at Eastlake and Broadway for a 24-hour convenience market.
(3) MOTION: The Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council opposes the granting of any kind of alcoholic license for the 7-11 at Eastlake and Broadway.
Or, on the otherside of this issue, will you bow to the wishes of 7-11 and grant their request, hoping that the community is not fool by the verbaige posted on the agenda above? It is evident that some in the community have been bought off, errr, given thought to the plight of the Broadway and Eastlake Store Owners and want them to enhance or grow their sales, with the beer and wine option.
In my discussions with members of the LHNC, there are only five sure yes votes for Motion 3. It makes one wonder if the Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce and the Business Improvment District, is putting pressure on the LHNC to usurp the will of the Greater Lincoln Heights Community. But then if the store donates more material support to the Lincoln High School Football Program, that should override community concerns about additional alcohol sales.
.... and a special message to Area 4 Represenative Lou Calanche, just think if you vote no on Motion 3 and beer and wine sales are granted at this location, maybe they will reward your no vote with beer and wine donations for your next Legacy LA Fundraiser at the Hazard Park Armory? BTW, can you bring your permit to serve alcohol on Recreation and Parks Property to Thursday's meeting, so all can see you were following the rule of law, pertaining to alcohol use on public property?
See you there and remember board members of the LHNC, it was the 13-17 age demographics that got you all elected, right Vera?
