The Dana Point Planning Commission is set to hear an appeal Monday for a Planning Department-approved permit application for a Beverages & More (BevMo!) store proposed at the southern end of the Lantern District.

According to Ursula Luna-Reynosa, the city’s community development director, the city had previously approved a development permit for a 5,000-square-foot bank building on the site. When that application fell through, BevMo! indicated an interest in the site for one of their small-format stores.

With the entitlements already approved, by code, the project required only a minor conditional use permit, for the sale of alcoholic beverages, which can be approved by the community development director, Luna-Reynosa said.

The city received an appeal from Party Time Liquor owners Mi and Yoon S. Lee on May 15, the last day of the 15-day appeals period.

The appeal necessitates the hearing by the Planning Commission, which has been scheduled for 6 p.m., Monday, June 8 in City Hall Council Chambers, 33282 Golden Lantern.
