The San Fernando City Council on Monday rejected a request by anti-liquor activists to hold a third public workshop on a proposal to limit alcohol sales in the small city. Council members pointed out they have already held two public workshops this summer and enacted a six-month moratorium on issuance of sales permits to give planners time to draft new rules limiting the number of businesses selling alcohol. The moratorium expires Feb. 28.

The city Planning Commission on Tuesday rejected Big Red Family Entertainment Center's request for a permit to add an upscale restaurant to an existing pizza parlor and arcade, saying alcohol and kids' video games don't mix. The owner of the popular pizza restaurant and game room sought permission to divide the facility into two buildings: one where beer, wine and spirits would be sold to diners, and another where kids could play arcade games, officials said.

Car dealers in the city may be allowed greater use of banners, streamers, pennants and other temporary signs if the City Council adopts amendments to the zoning ordinance as recommended by the Planning Commission. The commission unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday night recommending adoption of the amendments, which would allow auto dealers and other merchants in the city's commercial and business zone to apply for 21-day permits to display banners, pennants and streamers.

The San Fernando Planning Commission has recommended a change in the city's zoning to ban new religious institutions, such as churches, from moving into storefronts or commercial buildings in the city's business districts. After holding a hearing this week, the commission voted to back the zoning amendment in an effort to keep commercial areas open for tax-revenue producing businesses. Two people spoke in favor of the measure and none spoke against it.

San Fernando City Council members have held firm on a recent vote to ban most new liquor stores, rejecting a plea by a merchant for permission to sell beer and wine at a convenience store. The council, citing a provision in the ordinance that prohibits the issuance of permits to serve alcohol until the city reaches a population of 33,000, turned down the appeal of Elena Lira at a hearing Monday.

The San Fernando City Council voted Monday to nearly double the size of the city's central business district. "We see development expanding in the area," said Howard Miura, the city's community development director. The new boundaries will extend in some areas south to Hollister Street and west to Kalisher Street. Only one single-family home and one duplex will be affected by proposed zone changes, Miura said. Residents will be notified before zoning hearings. Worried that the rectory of St.

In a move that one member said will "add teeth" to efforts to crack down on illegal alcohol sales, the San Fernando Planning Commission this week approved a provision making it easier for the city to prosecute rogue establishments. In a 4-0 vote, with one member abstaining, the commission increased the penalties for businesses that continue to sell alcohol after their conditional-use permits have been revoked or suspended.

It wasn't quite a debate over what is art, but in San Fernando the City Council this week decided what it likes--and doesn't like--in colors for the exteriors of buildings. The City Council voted 4 to 1 to extend its regulation on building colors to the entire city. The regulation currently applies to redevelopment areas only, which include about half the city's commercial buildings. If approved in a second vote Sept.

Alarmed by the recent debut of the city's first tattoo and body piercing parlor, the San Fernando City Council on Monday unanimously passed an emergency ordinance imposing a 45-day moratorium on the opening of similar businesses. Councilman Raul Godinez II, acting as mayor pro tem at Monday's council meeting, said the city would use the time to possible zoning restrictions that would make businesses offering tattoos, body-piercing or selling drug paraphernalia less accessible to minors.

The item stuck out on the City Council agenda like a sore thumb: "Tattoo/Body Piercing Survey Results." But it wasn't a report on the number of San Fernando city employees who have pierced noses or anchors stenciled across their biceps. The subject was what, if anything, the city could do about its first tattoo parlor, Chubb's Clothing and Record Shop, which opened about three weeks ago on Brand Boulevard. The answer: not much.

If they plan ahead a little bit, owners of buildings devastated by the Northridge earthquake could get a break from the city of San Fernando. The City Council has announced a Feb. 28 cutoff date for owners of "non-conforming" residential buildings--apartments, houses or condominiums located in areas that have since been rezoned--to submit plans to rebuild their properties.
