The amendment will also allow changes in land uses without requiring additional parking for properties up to 6,000 square feet. These changes will give property and business owners the flexibility they need to respond to changing market conditions in order to remain competitive.
This is a game-changer for businesses opening, expanding or even current businesses who pay for parking that is under-utilized.
On Monday, November 5, 2018, the West Hollywood City Council approved updates for Special Event permitting policies.
Some highlights of the Special Event Permit process include allowing businesses to hold a sidewalk sale, host a wine and cheese reception at an art gallery opening, have a restaurant buyout event, extended operating hours and/or a temporary Valet when nothing else in a business’ routine operation is changing and other minor events will no longer require a special event permit.
Thank you to our city staff, Jackie Rocco and Brant Birkeland in the Business Development Division of Economic Development Department and Maribel Louie for her leadership.
