A proposal for a restaurant that would feature horse-racing wagers will not be revisited by a city commission until November at the request of the applicants.
The restaurant was originally scheduled to be discussed Thursday at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Planning Commission, which has now been canceled.
The new owners of the property at 23221 Lake Center Dr., formerly occupied by a Black Angus Steakhouse, have applied for a permit to open the restaurant where customers could dine, drink and make off-track bets on horse races.
The building has been vacant since 2009.
But when the group made its proposal to the city's Planning Commission, commissioners asked the investors to bring back additional information, expressing concern that their plans may not be sophisticated enough for Lake Forest.
The property owners requested the delay, according to Director of Development Services Gayle Ackerman. It has been moved to the agenda for the Nov. 8 meeting.
The one other item listed on Thursday's agenda—also a request for a use permit—is expected to be withdrawn at the commission's next meeting, Ackerman said.
