CHS: “Neighbor puts Volunteer Park Cafe in a pickle over plans for outdoor seating.”

27 Jun
Today, Capital Hill Seattle (CHS; aka: the Capitol Hill blog) posts its version of the events unfolding at 17th & Galer. “jseattle” writes:

A complaint filed by a neighbor with a bone to pick has owners Ericka Burke and Heather Earnhardt scrambling not just to make sure they have the proper permits for their new garden and sidewalk seating plans but also filing paperwork for the restaurant as a whole …

A message posted inside the cafe on Sunday afternoon notified customers that a video was being shot in another effort to illustrate support. Also posted was a fresh DPD permit application notice for sidewalk cafe seating dated June 21.

You might have noted that the original complaint was made to the city back in mid-May. In the e-mail, VPC’s owners say they tried to make a “win-win” situation but apparently time has run out. The DPD warning shown above requires compliance by July 1.
