March CAPS Meeting


Until further notice, all CAPS meetings will be held virtually. Please email your district in order to get the Zoom link to your specific meeting.

March CAPS Meetings-

The Beat 1414 meeting from last night included discussions about the recent carjackings and police response to the victim shot at the Fullerton/Sacramento gas station last month. Police have connected the offender to a series of other carjackings and ATM burglaries that happened throughout the north side of the City by an armed group.

We also discussed the application by Granero to operate as a nightclub with a Public Place of Amusement license at 2529 N Milwaukee. Despite pandemic rules for businesses, Granero held an over-capacity gathering and operated outside of closure orders. They further refused entry to the police and business affairs investigators who arrived to shut it down. Residents, police and our office have written opposition letters and expressed community sentiment that the PPA license should be denied, despite the approval of the Zoning Board of Appeals of the application process in 2019. Before the latest citation and refusal of entry, Granero has violated city codes and disrupted the quality of life of neighbors in the community. While it is important to encourage economic activity and small businesses that abide by the rules, we must foremost protect the safety and quality of life of our residents and neighboring businesses.
