One of the biggest bars/restaurants on Second Street.
Already has four 4-top tables as part of sidewalk dining granted for free by the city in 1997.
Proposed parklet would remove two parking spaces even when parklet is not in use; ripple effects on community are 24/7/365.
20 parklet patrons and more staff members will create additional parking burdens on Second Street and the neighborhood.
If all current parklet applications on Second Street are approved, 18 vitally needed parking spaces will be permanently lost.
Applications for Legends and other Second Street bars and restaurants could be approved well before Public Works conducts its planned Second Street traffic study. The study should occur before application reviews.
Bar patrons do not remain in parklet or sidewalk dining areas encroaching on sidewalk and obstructing pedestrians; customers drink and watch tv from sidewalk outside of sidewalk dining fence.
Neither staff nor management intervene to solve this right-of-way and ADA issue.
The LCDP is focused on beach accessibility, beach visibility and beach impacts. Your emailed comments should emphasize how giving up dozens of public parking spaces for bars and restaurants will harm residents' and visitors' ability to reach and enjoy the beach areas. (Think: two spaces AND more bar and restaurant parklet patrons AND more parklet staff, THUS more cars!)
