4028 24TH STREET - on the north side of 24th Street between Noe and Castro streets; Lot 011 in Assessor’s Block 3656 - Request for Conditional Use Authorization, pursuant to Planning Code Sections 303 and 728.44 to allow a small self-service restaurant (d.b.a. Easy Breezy) within the 24th Street – Noe Valley Neighborhood Commercial District and a 40-X Height and Bulk District.
Staff Analysis: Approval with Conditions

Preliminary Recommendation: Do not take Discretionary Review and approve
While the application in the window states a dba of "Sweep Shop," the application cites "Easy Breezy" as the proposed business name. More:
The Project is not a Formula Retail use, defined under the Formula Retail provisions of Planning Code Sections 703.3 and 703.4, but rather an independent, locally owned business. The Project is designed to mainly serve residents from the surrounding neighborhood and patrons of other businesses on 24 1h Street. The Project will create up to three job openings. The proposed operation includes self-serve yogurt machines and a check-out counter to pay for the sale of yogurt prior to consumption. Patrons will have the option for take-out or dine-in at the on site seating area with up to eleven seats. The proposed hours of operation are between 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 P.M. Sunday through Thursday and 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
The full staff analysis contains the application, proposed floorplan, and letters of support from five residents and seven merchants.
