Eagle Scouts unable to use Fletcher Cove Community Center

Recently some parents were interested in renting the Fletcher Cove Community Center (FCCC) for an Eagle Scout Court of Honor, a reception honoring three new Eagle Scouts from Solana Beach and three from neighboring communities.  The Fire Marshal’s posted capacity is 100 guests for events not using tables, however, in August the Solana Beach City Council cut the capacity to 50 for all events.  Council’s rationale for the cut was parking problems, but on Friday nights, 57 spaces become available at 5 p.m. in the City-owned Mellmo lot.  Nevertheless the limitation is set at a maximum of 50.

As the parents projected a number close to 100, they realized they could not use the FCCC and were forced to rent a room in another facility.  Am I missing something?  If a Community Center is not to be used for such a community event, what is it for?  I understand Prop B will overturn this and many other unreasonable restrictions.  Thus I urge a “Yes” vote on Prop B.
