7:15pm-Todd Morey, who is working with two partners to open The Radio Room on NE 11th Avenue and Alberta discussed the restaurant’s progress. The remediation of the soil has taken place, the old gas tanks have been cleaned and are now going to be used for storm water retention. The Alberta side will have planters and a patio, and the 11th Avenue side will have bicycle parking, There will be no off-street parking to encourage it to be a neighborhood restaurant. The hours will be 9am-midnight 7 days a week, with a happy hour from 3pm-6pm everyday. The type of food will be ‘elevated blue collar American’. Todd would like to continue working on the Good Neighbor Agreement with KNA.
