Another item that he wanted to highlight is the disorder and current crime situation going on right now with car windows being smashed, catalytic converters stolen and even cars being stolen. Said that there is market saturation and that adding another bar in the area (sufficient with the existing 30 bars) would not help the current situation. Adam Bieck – 4080 N. Port Washington Rd. said he manages 3921 and 3901 N. Humboldt, which are 2-3 parcels south from the proposed tavern. Stated that the apartment complex already has traffic from the side street (alley) all day and all night, which creates a hazard already for the tenants. Added that as for the crime scenario there were 7 cars broken into Sunday morning at their complex, so adding more intoxicated patrons won’t benefit the area. He said that over the past 5 years, the neighborhood has been improving and a new tavern would be a step back. Individuals in support: Lataya Smith -- 225 E. Capitol Dr. – said she wants a place to relax and unwind after a long day at work. Qiana Milton – 5817 N. 77th St. – said she reached out to the applicant when she had Junior’s and that she assisted the applicant with questions on operating a bar business and offered suggestions. She stated that she feels that the applicant is ready to operate an establishment and that she is in support. Individuals also present: Ald. Coggs said that the parking and cars been broken is an issue and asked the applicant what was her plan for parking and not add issues over there. The applicant said that her goal is to have security at the door and patrolling around making sure that patrons don't park on the apartment complexes parking lots. Atty. Maistelman said that they have permission to use the parking lot and that will have surveillance cameras and that he has submitted a mitigation plan which includes to reach out to MPD, to secure the area and even to hire off duty officer. The applicant said that she was the sole owner of the business when Ald. Coggs asked her the question. Ald. Coggs asked her about her experience in managing. The applicant said that she never owned a bar before but managed scheduled, preparing cocktails and talking to customers. Ald. Coggs asked the applicant if she ever held a manager's license. The applicant said: "yes, I have" for Junior's Cocktail Lounge from January 2020 to November 2020. Mr. Cooney confirmed that Junior's held a license until January 2021 and was not renewed after that. verified that the mailing addresses for Junior's on 3300 W National Av and this applications are the same. Ald. Coggs talked to the committee about Junior's being on Ald. Zamarripa's district and suspended for 60 days based on the police report and that between the period from committee to council even shots were fired which Ald. Zamarripa witnessed herself so the application was sent back to committee. The applicant said that she was gone when that incident happened. Ald. Coggs asked the applicant if she had connection to Junior's. The applicant said "No, I don't". Ald.. Coggs asked Mr. Cooney to verify the mailing address for Junior's and this application which turned out to be the same. Ald. Coggs asked the applicant again for her connection with Junior's. The applicant said that she misunderstood the question and that she knows the owner. Ald. Coggs said that Riverworks held a neighborhood meeting where the applicant said she had no connection with Junior’s except for bartending the three times that she was asked the question. Added that upon an evaluation from social media was how they found out that both mailing addresses were the same. Also explained that even the zoning allows to change the use of the premises she must agree with the neighbors and the Riverworks Improvement District that a lounge is not the use for this building whoever the applicant be. She remember when the big lots down on Capitol Dr. became a bar and the police had to shut down E Capitol Dr. because of the volume of people attracted to the place. Added that changing the use would also change the dynamics for the commercial corridor. About the application, Ald. Coggs said that she does not feel that what the applicant has shared to this point has not been transparent and it is extremely disturbing to her. She asked that members deny this application. Ald. Kovac asked the applicant if she had any questions for Ald. Coggs. The applicant said that she did not have any questions but wanted to apologize for coming off that way and that she did not mentioned Junior's connections because she did not want to hinder her. She said that bringing Junior's out would have been a detour. Ald. Kovac asked the applicant to repeat her reason for not disclosing the connection with Junior's. The applicant said that the connection with Junior's would have an effect on the decision making. Ald. Kovac moved denial. (Prevailed 5-0)
