The Pacific Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended approval of new bar and live music venue to be located at 530 E. Osage in the Pacific Plaza.

The property is currently zoned commercial (C-1).

Larry Fulkerson, a musician who lives in Luebbering, wants to open a bar that would provide live music and karaoke.

Fulkerson said no food would be provided on the site. There will be both live music and karaoke on weekends.

“I go back a long way with that little room,” he said. “For years I wanted to put a bar in that spot and the flood brought things around to where I can do it now,” he said.

Following a motion by Commissioner Jim Smith, the plan board voted unanimously to recommend approval of the use to the board of aldermen.
