The Planning Commission has set a hearing for Nov. 9 to determine if the owners of Buzz restaurant should lose their business permit.

When commissioners approved the permit in May 1998, they waived a requirement for 41 parking spaces because most of the restaurant's second floor was to be used for interactive video and sports games. Parking requirements for game arcades are lower than those for restaurants.

Earlier this year, the restaurant's owners turned the floor into a dance area, bar and food service area. City officials say that because of the change, the restaurant's permit no longer applies.

Commissioners also must determine if a high number of disturbances at the restaurant, in the 3400 block of Via Oporto, should be an issue in considering its business license.
