Infuzion Zone consists of a laser tag arena, virtual reality <br /> and arcade games, a café serving prepackaged and/or frozen foods, two party rooms for <br /> private events, and a soft play area for younger children. Pursuant to Appendix A <br /> (Regulation of Uses by Zoning District) of the Chino Hills Municipal Code (CHMC), a <br /> Conditional Use Permit is required to allow the operation of an entertainment center within <br /> the General Commercial (C-G) zoning district. <br /> Three public speakers expressed support for the proposed project as providing an <br /> opportunity for family entertainment that is compatible with the Chino Hills community. <br /> One of the speakers did express concern regarding the existing traffic congestion that <br /> occurs during peak hours at the project's signalized entryway on Chino Hills Parkway. <br /> The Planning Commission discussed the following aspects with staff and the applicant: <br /> • Accompaniment of children by their parents during their visit to the center; <br /> • Supervision of children in the soft play area of the project; <br /> • Parking conditions within the existing shopping center; and <br /> • The project's compatibility with the surrounding uses. <br /> The applicant requested that the Planning Commission consider modifying the Conditions <br /> of Approval to allow the serving of alcoholic beverages by caterers during private party <br /> events held at the entertainment center. The Commission discussed potential concerns <br /> regarding the proposed alcohol service and suggested that the item be continued to allow <br /> staff to further review the proposal. After further discussion with the Commission, the <br /> applicant withdrew her request to modify the condition to allow the alcohol service in order <br /> 1 <br />
