Also, seven <br /> nonobjectors were noted. Staff had no objections. <br /> Public hearing was opened. <br /> Mrs. Sam Lunas, 1490 Chambers Street, said that site was not a good location for <br /> e a tavern because of senior citi~en's residences and a school in the vicinity. <br /> Also, such an establishment would add to already heavy traffic. <br /> Dr. Alexander Dederer, representing the Westmoreland Clinic at 1650 Chambers <br /> Street, said that group was opposed to a tavern so close to the clinic because of <br /> the possibility of vandalism which would increase maintenance and security <br /> measures. Also, that a pub in this area would destroy some of the atmosphere <br /> that first attracted the clinic to that area. <br /> Alan Spence, 1790 West 15th Avenue, considered the proposed tavern a devaluation <br /> of the neighborhood in general. <br /> Public hearing was closed, there being no further testimony presented. <br /> Councilman Haws asked if there was any written communication from the School <br /> District concerning the proximity of the pub. Manager replied only that the <br /> GLCC report showed the principal of Patterson Elementary School as noncommittal <br /> on the application when contacted. <br /> Councilman Bradley asked whether a restaurant was now operated at the proposed <br /> location. Manager answered that the building was now vacant, there had been a <br /> restaurant there at one time. <br /> Councilwoman Shirey asked if liquor was ever served in an establishment at that <br /> location.
