Update for 1201 Payne St

**1201 Payne UPDATE**

Greeting IH Neighbors,

Owners of 1201 Payne St want to expand the kitchen to the rear building for a proposed restaurant. To expand the property in this way, they will have to apply for C-1 zoning as they communicated in the recent public meeting at d’Orio’s. In response to neighbors’ requests, they have agreed to add several binding elements to their zoning application.

  1. Restrict future C-1 use to the following: Antiques , Galleries, Bakeries, Barber, Catering kitchen, Clothing, Computer sales, Confectionery, Dwelling (single, two-family, multifamily), Florist, Hardware, Home occupations, Interior Decorating, Music store, Photocopying, Photography shop/studio, Framing, Restaurant, Shoe repair/store, Tailor, Toy/Hobby, Vet.
  2. Restaurant service hours of Sun.-Thurs. 11am-10pm, Fri-Sat. 11am-12pm
  3. Restaurant seating capacity not to exceed 103 persons.

The owners have also asked for C-1 uses as B&Bs, Boarding & lodging, Clubs, Extended stay, Office & Tanning. The IHNA BOD is concerned about these, especially the lodging-type categories, as other neighborhoods have had issues with lack of regulation in this area. We also would recommend including other binding elements in their application such as limited lighting, signage, and offsite parking arrangements for employees to free up more street spots for residents.
