Sveinn Storm of Storm Bros is now selling farm raised eggs and beef to raise funds for his 501c3 (Mission to Morazin / https://www.facebook.com/missiontomorazan)

How is an enclosed heated tent any different than eating inside the restaurant?
Mark Mhley
34:06
Increases their footprint and ability to provide socially distant tables.
Mark Mhley
34:43
And maintain same # of tables / customers per hour per normal ops
Carl Larkin
35:21
Is the City funding the purchase of the large tents? How is the City supporting businesses that do not have room for a large tent. Is this a bias for those that can accommodate a large tent?
Susan Margulies

A very nice mural! :)

A clarification... I believe that Airbnb collects the tax automatically if live outside of Annapolis but inside Anne Arundel county, but Airbnb does NOT collect the tax automatically if you live in the city.
Marty Etzel
43:36
Susan is 100% correct.
Susan Margulies
43:47
That you, Marty, for the confirmation, I appreciate it!
Susan Margulies
44:34
Annapolis Resident, full-time owner-occupied hosts have been complaining about how difficult it is to collect and remit the taxes on their own to the city. Just a comment!
Jonathan Hollander
47:17
its open along the side to the restaurant
Jonathan Hollander
47:25
and partially open along the severn street side
Jonathan Hollander
47:46
I mean the 5th street side. tables spaced at 8' or more.
Marty Etzel
47:55
I can further clarify on Air & city, I have had several exchanges with Jodee Dickinson (Finance dept)
Larry Claussen
49:04
I have been to Boatyard Grill and Dick Franyo says he plans to put heaters under his tents. are there plans to put heaters under the tents in Market Space?
Marty Etzel
49:51
S Rice recently said no CARES/city funds were available to support restaurants
Mark Mhley

Reminder if you haven’t answered our survey on ADUs to please jump on and do it here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScwaDQ8U7W0kl7XLRBgH4GLXozPBO-6ZZQFlnlbkQVJd4ZIQg/viewform?usp=sf_link

You have to engage "Host Professional Tools" with is an extra thing. After you do that, then Airbnb collects the tax and sends it to YOU, and then you remit it to the city.
Susan Margulies
52:19
Click on Occupancy Tax, and you will see.
Marty Etzel
52:59
again, Susan is right
Susan Margulies
53:58
And I really second Marty's comments also. Resident owner-occupied hosts are usually not business folk.
Jonathan Hollander
56:12
I have comments
Susan Margulies
56:55
Me too! :)

Does anyone else wish to make comments about ADUs before we review WORA’s survey responses?
Felicia Barlow Clar
01:13:33
They’re illegally on my street too.
Susan Margulies
01:14:17
Can I ask about these illegal ADUs? Is there no hope of grand-fathering in non-conforming housing? I ask because I know of some very nice houses that just have two kitchens for examples?
Susan Margulies
01:20:01
50/50 could not be more helpful! :)
Elly Tierney
01:20:45
Tell Alderman Gay!!!!! 50/50 is good.
Susan Margulies
01:21:36
Is there some possibility of sizing the ADU based on the undeveloped part of a lot?
Elly Tierney
01:22:45
On tax credit, if clear on offering 'affordable housing' they should receive a tax credit? thoughts?
Jonathan Hollander
01:26:38
makes no sense to have a tax credit then to have rent control
Jonathan Hollander
01:26:43
that is just a city paid for subsidy
Jonathan Hollander
01:26:45
to the owner
Susan Margulies
01:28:28
It is so sad that the ADU bill didn't pass, because refinance rates are so good right now. There really is a time pressure to pass that ADU bill (I think).
Susan Margulies
01:28:46
Despite the economic uncertainty of the pandemic, it really really really is a good time to build right now.
Felicia Barlow Clar
01:31:55
Thank you.
