Letter: Someone must answer for Tai Wu parking violations
May 13, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter


Who does the Millbrae Planning Department think they are fooling (“Tai Wu asked to make changes” in the May 7 edition of the Daily Journal)? They allowed Tai Wu to be constructed, knowing very well they were not conforming to the building codes, by allowing construction to start and finish without any onsite parking.

Now they are trying to cover up the problem by allowing Tai Wu to rent space from other businesses. Who is to say those businesses will remain open or be sold to someone who will cancel any lease agreement? Who is to say the customers will park in those designated lots? Human nature says the customers will continue to park in residential areas and in front of nearby businesses that are already losing business because of Tai Wu parking. All construction must go through several progress inspections and a final inspection. The building inspection department must have been either blind or not very knowledgeable to have let any of the violations pass.

If Tai Wu was supposed to have 111 parking spaces, why were they not put under ground like the apartment complexes are required to? Did the planning department believe they would appear out of the blue? What makes Tai Wu so special? I believe special favors were applied and may be illegal. Someone must answer for these violations. The neighbors have a very legitimate and legal complaint with the city.

The planning department is trying to cover up the parking issue by citing other issues like fire apparatus, seating and PG&E meter noise. Residents and business owners shouldn’t take this lightly. Fight for your rights. The restaurant must have onsite parking adequate enough to accommodate their patrons or be shut down.
