The City Council sided with the residents of Lincoln street and approved the appeal to stop the spray booth at 2300 Burbank Blvd. The business is situated close to two schools and residences including nine senior citizens. The good news is the business is still zoned for automotive repair and won’t go under as this painting portion was just a side operation. However, the City Staff and Planning Board failed that business. They should be warning applicants that conducting businesses with toxins of any kind near residential areas is a risky proposition. Because we will fight back. The City Council meeting was a true inspiration as a residents and school kids came to the podium to express their concern over the toxins that could be used. Still, I wonder what the decision would have been if we all didn’t show up in force last night?
