Those hoping for public hearing drama at yesterday’s City Council meeting were not only let down by the hearing for the Grove at Shoal Creek planned unit development (which was upsettingly peaceful), but two other public hearings that were scheduled to take place yesterday afternoon also failed to deliver. An appeal of an outdoor music venue permit for the 145-year-old Scoot Inn is currently in mediation, and a request for an alcohol permit within 300 feet of a school for South First’s Snarf’s Sandwiches was noticed improperly. Both will be postponed until November.
