“Huh?” you’re saying to yourself, “Hasn’t Starbucks on Montague had tables outside during the warm months for the last gosh-knows-how-many years? Don’t they have a permit?” Fact is, they don’t. So, since someone has now noticed, they need to jump through the proper hoops. There will be a hearing before the Community Board 2 land use committee tomorrow evening (Tuesday, May 18) starting at 6:15 p.m. at St Francis College, 180 Remsen Street. According to the CB2 press release: “This public hearing is to be held prior to a monthly meeting of the Transportation and Public Safety Committee, which may make a recommendation to Community Board 2.”
If you long to have your half-caf latte al fresco, or if, on the other hand, you’re one of those folks who reflexively opposes everything, you may want to show up.
