North Essex Ave in Margate getting closed again? BOCCA Restaurant wants to, once again, expand outdoors for Summer 2021.
The plan is to erect a large tent, serve food & drink, and provide music on this public, right of way; North Essex Ave, at the corner of Ventnor Ave in Margate.
Neighbors hate the idea. So do other Margate eateries that would love the same, sweet deal.
On today’s consent agenda, at the 4p Margate Commissioners meeting, Mayor Becker and his crew; Maury Blumberg & John Amodeo, will likely push this deal thru. No matter what neighbors say.
Odd. The consent agenda usually includes items of business which are not controversial & do not require individual discussion.
This is definitely controversial.
Neighbors put up with this last year, due to the pandemic. But this year?
A Motion approving the Consent Agenda is moved, seconded & voted upon as one item by the Board of Commissioners.
You have been warned.
If any discussion requested on a Consent Agenda item, it is removed from the Consent Agenda to the Regular Agenda.MARGATE-06-03-21_regular_meeting_0
PUBLIC COMMENT: All covid restrictions have been lifted, and it is business as usual for all businesses. It is outrageous that Bocca gets such special treatment to totally inconvenience the neighborhood. Last year was a three ring circus with extra loud music, noisy patrons late at night, lots and lots of trash, and safety concerns.
