Neighbor files complaint against VPC, citing zoning violation.

18 May

Today, Seattle’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) received a complaint citing zoning violation by Volunteer Park Cafe. The Notes section of the complaint reads: “The grocery has expanded its use with a cafe.”

DPD assigned the case #1022656. A zoning inspection is forthcoming

Technically: the main floor of 1501 17th Ave. E. is zoned as an exemption (‘Non-conforming use’) to the neighborhood’s residential status. As stated in the Notes section of the complaint: “The grocery has expanded its use with a cafe.”

Technically, the DPD inspect will determine if VPC has changed their land use from ‘Non-conforming use: Grocery’ to ‘Non-conforming use: A Eating and Drinking Establishment’ without proper permitting.
