The owners of the South Trail property on which the closed Longevity Cafe sits are seeking to expand their parking lot.
Ted and Georgia Nicholoudis, Bradenton, have a new restaurant tenant at 1737 S. Tamiami Trail, and they want to create a larger parking area for it.
The couple also owns the home at 2043 Arlington St., which is directly behind the restaurant property, and is seeking to tear it down to make more parking space.
To do so, though, they need to request a zoning change. Their agent will go before the City Commission this evening. The change would be from the RMF-3 residential zone to commercial neighborhood district.
City staff is recommending commissioners approve the change. The Planning Board gave its approval July 28.
