A perfect storm of mishaps kept me from Logan Square Kitchen's hearing before the Zoning Board of Appeals Friday morning, but Zina Murray reports that about 40 friends and family showed up in support of her effort to change the zoning designation of the shared-use kitchen and events space and thus be spared having to meet a parking requirement that she says could kill her business.
She hopes the show of community support will have an effect, noting that it's pretty unusual for that many people to show up in person—and when they do, it's usually in opposition to a zoning change. Next, says Zina, "The Board of Appeals votes in private. We must gain a majority, in this case three of four members. We will be informed of the decision in a couple of weeks via mail. The board's decision is final. Stay positive, and think good thoughts for us. The kitchen is too good an idea to be denied. I know all the positive energy of everyone is having an effect."
