Liquor and self-storage are on the agendas for planning commissions meeting next week in Westminster and Garden Grove.

The Westminster panel will meet on Wednesday, Aug. 18 via teleconference at 6:30 p.m. Topping the agenda will be request for a conditional use permit to allow the sale of distilled spirits at the Cloud 9 Sports Bar OC, located at 7821-7823 Westminster Blvd.

Currently the business has a beer-and-wine permit only, and the operators wish to upgrade to the lucrative hard liquor sales as well. The bar is located west of Beach Boulevard and east of Hoover Street.

In Garden Grove, the planners will meet on Thursday, Aug. 19 in person in the council chamber in the Community Meeting Center at 7 p.m.

The sole topic of the meeting is the continuation of a request for a site plan to demolish the existing two-story building at the northwest corner of Chapman and Western avenues – recently occupied by Spectrum cable services –  and in its place build a six-story self-storage building.

At the Aug. 5 meeting, the panel voted 4-2 to ask city staff to return at the next meeting with a resolution rejecting the request for the permit.
