City Committee Overturns Porky's Denial
Through a condition laden motion, the Zoning and Planning Committee on the Minneapolis City Council voted to overturn Minneapolis staff recommendations and the Zoning Commissions repeated denials of Porky's application for a fast food drive-thru on Central Avenue.
CM Don Samuels made two motions supporting the rezoning of the 1851 Central (Porky's site) and the conditional use permit and land use plan. The rezoning passed 4-2 with Samuels, Goodman, Colvin Roy, and Remington in support; Schiff and Gordon voted against the rezoning. The second vote regarding the conditional use permit and land use plan passed 5-1 with only CM Schiff voting against the motion.
The full council will consider the matter on Friday at 9:30 am.
