Photo: Diane Edwardson, September 7, 2015. Rose Scharlin Co-op Nursery School has been on Lake View Ave since 1946. They've been operating a school in a residential zone without, and in direct violation of their last Conditional Use Permit (CUP) from the City for the last 28 years. The school will present their revised proposed CUP to the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council this Wednesday.
The current proposed CUP is a compromise reached after a 4+ hour long meeting, outdoors on an extremely hot and humid day, between a number of neighbors and Rose Scharlin families and their consultant.
*Changes include 2 fundraisers a year on the property; use of the property 8:30 am - 2:30pm, 3 days a week, until 4:30 PM or 5 PM, 2 days a week*; use of the property on one Saturday a month, every month; a second Saturday every other month; and potentially (due to the way it's now worded) up to 3 Saturdays a month in 3 of those months because of the fundraisers and graduation. Limits on noise and amplified music still need some clarification for the "canyon effect."
If you want to know more, attend the meeting.
*Update 1PM: There seems to be some discrepancies in the 2 weekday afternoon, Saturday and fundraiser hours. The devil is in the details. The details are always important.
