Possible Extension for Outdoor Dining
An emergency order that allowed restaurants in Naperville to offer outdoor dining has expired and is now in talks for an extension. At yesterday’s Liquor Commission meeting, Mayor Steve Chirico suggested the panel give it consideration as several restaurants are currently in violation of the city’s outdoor dining ordinance. The commission approved this recommendation. Now Naperville City Council will have the final say whether to provide the extension.
PZC’s Disapproval of JoJo’s Color Scheme
At Wednesday’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, the commission expressed disapproval of the accent colors at the upcoming JoJo’s Shake Bar location at 5 Jackson Ave. The commission and city council had approved the color scheme in July. City staff had asked for leeway to pass the design without presenting it to the commission, and the result was a color scheme the commission found too bright for Downtown Naperville. Commissioner Bruce Hanson suggested city staff consider ways to change the existing downtown design guidelines and adjust the signage at JoJo’s.
Possible Pure Barre Move to Street Level
Naperville residents may be able to enjoy a new, but familiar addition to the downtown streets. The Naperville Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval to relocate the Pure Barre Main Street studio down to the first floor of its current building. The fitness studio petitioned for the move citing retail success in recent years, and suggested that ground floor visibility would support a further increase in retail sales. Naperville City Council will have the final say on whether the fitness studio can move to street level.
