An appeal has been filed in response to the City of Jacksonville Planning Commission's decision to approve Mellow Mushroom's request to allow sale and service of alcoholic beverages and outside service in conjunction with their proposed 198-seat Avondale restaurant. We Love Avondale, LLC feels that their property rights will be detrimentally affected by Mellow Mushroom, due to the loss of the right of peaceable enjoyment of their properties, reduced property values due to traffic, parking, light, noise, and nuisance issues, public safety hazards, and stifling of existing businesses. Here is a look at the recently filed notice of appeal.

Mellow Mushroom's proposed Avondale restaurant would replace a long abandoned Shell gas station in the heart of the Shops of Avondale.  The 198-seat restaurant would includes on-site parking and would be located directly across the street from the Brick Restaurant at the signalized intersection of St. Johns Avenue and Ingleside Avenue.
