The Lodi Planning Commission will consider St. Anne’s Catholic Church’s request at its meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Carnegie Forum, 305 W. Pine St., Lodi.
Also on the agenda are the following projects:
A pizza parlor sets its sights on Downtown Lodi
Smack Pie Pizza hopes to offer Lodi residents pizza by the slice at lunch time if they get approval from the Planning Commission.
The new pizza parlor at 121 S. School Street is planning to offer pizza by the slice, individual pizzas and 20-inch full pizzas.
The new restaurant will go into a vacant storefront near Walnut Street. The location used to house a thrift store, but it has been vacant since 2008.
The applicant, Vicki Snell, is requesting a use permit for an Alcohol Beverage Control license for beer and wine.
Staff is recommending that the commission approve the use permit.
"Because the applicant’s request is for a Use Permit to allow sale of alcohol in conjunction with a full service restaurant, staff does not anticipate the alcohol sales portion of the business to create any problems," according to planning documents. "This operation would be similar to other restaurants within Lodi."
New tasting room plans to open on School Street
Joining a growing number of local wineries who have opened tasting rooms on School Street, Six Hands Winery and Sorelle Winery plan to open a joint business at 7 N. School Street.
Since it was constructed, the building has hosted a string of retail stores, according to city documents. The new tasting room wants to also sell wine-related gifts like decanters, stemware and cork screws.
The winery is asking for a use permit allowing for an Alcohol Beverage Control license for beer and wine.
"All of the existing similar businesses (wine tasting rooms) have not created any policing problems," according to the planning documents.
Target planning to sell liquor
Target is requesting a use permit allowing for a different Alcohol Beverage Control license, so they can begin to offer liquor in their store.
The store at 2355 W. Kettleman Lane currently sells beer and wine, but it would like to start selling distilled spirits, according to planning documents.
The Lodi Police Department does not anticipate any additional problems, and city staff recommended the Planning Commission agree to the new use permit.
"In the past, Planning staff generally supported establishments that wish to acquire an ABC off-sale license if it is determined the business would not create alcohol related problems," city documents said. "Staff is of the opinion approval of the applicant’s request would not create additional policing problems."
