Re: Zoning Application:

Wit or Witout Cheesesteaks

Applicant: Nicole DiZio

Owner: Nicole DiZio

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as a request for continuance re the above on behalf of the Mayfair Business Association (“MBA”) and Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”). Neither the MBA nor MCA have had an opportunity to hear from the above re their request. We would like a continuance so that the owner or its representative may present their case before a body of business and neighborhood citizens at our regularly scheduled bimonthly meeting on Tuesday November 24, 2009 at 7PM at the John M. Perzel Community Center at St. Vincent and Battersy Sts.

Wit or Witout Cheesesteaks appears to be the type of business that our organizations would gladly welcome to our community. However, when establishing a structure for our organizations, we must abide by the guidelines we expect every business to follow. Therefore, before we can write a letter of approval for the above, we must afford the business community and our neighborhood’s citizens the opportunity to hear from such business. Therefore, before we can grant our approval, we must first hear from the above and we ask that this body grant a continuance until such hearing has occurred. So as not to greatly inconvenience the above, we ask for a short continuance in order for this hearing to take place on November 24, 2009 at 7PM. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.
