The Daily Post has an article on page 8 of today’s newspaper about protests by two residents (unnamed – presumably from Barron Park? ) over the application by the owners of the Chalateco restaurant on El Camino for a liquor license. This is the location that had previously been Taco Bell.
The article quoted John Carr, the State’s Alcohol Beverage Control spokesman, as saying that his agency has received two protest letters and confirmed that the protests are valid. The protests “argued that there enough establishments that serve alcohol in the area. They also argue that it is a residential area and that it’s too close to schools.”
Carr said no hearings have been scheduled. “Now the owners will have an opportunity to work out a possible solution to overcome the objections.”
The article also mentioned the protest in 2010 over Walgreen’s application for a liquor license.
