CL bar solves parking hurdle
CRYSTAL LAKE – The Planning and Zoning Commission said a lack of parking along Route 14 should not stop the development of an upscale bar.
Adam Harjung wants to open a wine and cheese bar in the storefront of the Jaster Building at 414 W. Virginia St. He also plans to take over Chez Pierre’s Creperie, which would be renamed Sweet Melissa’s. He got approval, by 8-1, for a special-use permit for the bar. Commissioner David Goss rejected the permit.
Harjung initially had asked the commission to reduce the number of required parking spaces from eight to zero. However, he worked out a deal with nearby businesses to lease parking. Harjung secured nine spots in the Vogue Cleaners lot after the dry cleaning business closes at 5 p.m., and an additional five spots from a nearby medical supply company.
