Members questioned some of the waivers but agreed with the developer and staff that they are appropriate in this case. The design review was denied as there was no design presented for review.

Four TAB members suggested to staff the building should be “closed, padlocked or red-tagged” immediately until safety, fire, building code, signage, zoning and related matters are either brought into compliance or the use reverts to its currently approved status.
