All three strip clubs closed in September after losing a court battle that allowed the city to shut them down. Nearby residents shared concerns about the use and potential increased traffic the development could bring.
Stephen Pistorius, the developer, said at the required preliminary meeting held at the Church of Scientology that he is under contract for the 2-acre front lot, which was the location of the strip club, and was in discussions with a different landowner to buy the larger 4-acre lot behind it. If he is able to use the back lot, the assisted living facility could be units, he said. If the back lot is used, Pistorius hopes to bring a restaurant to the ground floor and a medical building to the front lot.
Without the back lot, a medical building would not be built and there would be around units, he said. To build a multiunit residence, the developer needs a zoning change to a character area that allows that use.
Some residents at the meeting worried a large residential building could bring more traffic than an office building. Pistorius disagrees and said he would do a traffic study.
Another joked another strip club should come, saying it was a good use because it brought traffic limited to evening hours when congestion is lower. Pistorius said he is planning to talk to the city about going through the zoning process in a way that ties the development plan to the zoning use so that residents know what they will be getting if the character area is changed. The developer is required to host a second community meeting, which has not been set yet, before appearing at the Planning Commission in March.
