Specific-Use Permit Sought For Bishop Arts Winery (No, Not That Bishop Arts Winery)
Exactly two weeks after it approved a specific-use permit for the Bishop Arts Winery, the City Plan Commission is set to approve one for another winery that would actually be in the Bishop Arts District. The agenda for this Thursday’s meeting (skip to Page 176) includes a permit for the Bishop Cider Co., which plans to occupy one of the suites in Amanda Cross’ property on the northwest corner of Bishop Avenue and Seventh Street.
According to the paperwork, operator Joel Malone proposes to manufacture “fruit ciders and traditional wines” in the 704-square-foot space. That sounds like tight quarters for stomping fruit, but what do I know about making cider?
Because the permit is recommended by the city’s staff and is listed on the consent agenda, it should get rubber-stamped by the City Plan Commission and move on to the City Council for approval early next year. The only hang-up, per the paperwork, is Malone and Cross will have to figure out how to provide one additional parking space before he can get a certificate of occupancy:
“Per the parking analysis provided by the applicant, 24 off-street spaces are required for all uses on the request site. As depicted on the site plan, 10 spaces are provided onsite. It has been confirmed that the site retains 11 delta credits and two (2) spaces are provided through remote parking agreement. This accounts for 23 spaces, which leaves the request site deficient by one (1) off-street parking space. For the applicant to retain a certificate of occupancy for the proposed use, one (1) additional parking space must be provided through a parking agreement.
What’s a delta credit?
