RESTAURANT CUP REVOKED
The Middle Eastern restaurant Urartu has had its Conditional Use Permit revoked, and the city of Glendale does not know what will now happen to the property.
Located at 3463 Foothill Blvd., the restaurant was found to be in violation of specific conditions under the CUP.
“They are out of operation, and we have revoked their Conditional Use Permit,” said Hassan Haghani, director of Glendale Community Planning.
The city planner assigned to the property, Milca Toledo, cited several misrepresentations in the restaurant’s CUP application form as the violations.
A hearing was held June 2 in front of hearing officer Wolfgang Krause. The hearing was continued on June 9, and the next day a decision letter was issued informing the owners of their revocation of the permit.
Urartu’s Zoning Use Certificate was also taken away on June 15. A 15-day period is given to appeal each revocation, and Toledo said the owners did not appeal each case.
“It was never appealed so that means that’s the final decision,” she said.
The property is divided into two zoning areas, a portion of it is commercial and a portion of the rear is residential.
When asked what would happen to the property now, Toledo said, “I have no idea.”
