After nearly three hours of debate, the Planning Commission voted 3 to 2 Monday to approve a permit that would allow the controversial charity Share Our Selves to move into new quarters. It will now be up to the City Council to decide whether the charity will be permitted to relocate to a vacant, 12,000-square-foot building at 1550 Superior Ave. in a southwest section of town dotted with commercial and light industrial businesses.

Despite protests from a handful of residents, owners of the Shark Club received unanimous City Council approval to allow dancing at the club's Baker Street pool hall. Some nearby residents claim that allowing a dance floor at the club will bring noise and parking problems to their neighborhood. "If the Shark Club wants to become a nightclub, let them go to an area that allows it," said Karen Watkins, who recently bought a home on Baker Street. "We don't want a nightclub in our neighborhood."

Despite a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that cities may not use zoning laws to keep out drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, the City Council this week denied a permit to the Recovery Center. Though the center's executive director, Nancy Clark, said she is convinced that the city's action violates the spirit of the court decision, she said the apartment complex at 1110 Victoria St. will continue to house 40 recovering alcoholics and drug addicts.

Prompted by years of noise and odor complaints from residents, the Planning Commission has denied a vitamin company's request for a manufacturing permit. The commission, in a 3 to 1 vote, imposed a two-year time limit to halt manufacturing activities at Westar Nutrition Inc. Commissioner Charles Robertson was absent; Tom Sutro voted no. "The use really was not appropriate adjacent to the residential properties," said Perry Valantine, the city's planning manager.

The owner of Henry N' Harry's Goat Hill Tavern has appealed a decision by the City Council that would shut the bar down. The bar's owner, Robert R. Ziemer, predicts that the case may result in some legal action if the council reaffirms its decision at a regularly scheduled meeting Aug. 6. "What we're going through right now is a procedure," Ziemer said Tuesday. "It's an appeal, and they're going to turn us down and then we're going to talk . . . through the courts."

Unwanted in parking lots, on sidewalks and in drained swimming pools, skateboarders may soon get a place of their own in the city. Park commissioners this week approved the concept of opening one or two skate parks. They sent their recommendation to the City Council, which may consider it April 20. The commission suggested a skating zone at Lions Park and at another yet-to-be-determined location. Costs could run from $70,000 to $85,000 each.

South Coast Plaza was rezoned Monday to give the City Council greater authority in approving future projects at the county's most popular shopping center. Zoning for the plaza was established in 1963 and allows Planning Commission approval for many additions and changes. The updated zoning ordinance, which matches regulations at the newer Metro Pointe, Crystal Court and South Coast Metro Center, requires City Council approval for changes.
