And the fact is, without remaining picky, the city along the San Francisco Bay wouldn’t maintain it’s small-town glamour.
Its latest reject: Peet’s Coffee & Tea.
It isn’t that the popular coffee shop isn’t good enough for city leaders, but policy is policy. And Peets was asking for a zoning change in order to open up its first café there.
But on Tuesday night, Sausalito’s City Council voted 3-2 against the change in local zoning would open the door to other corporate chains.
“This is about the uniqueness of Sausalito,” said Mayor Jonathan Leone, who voted against the zoning change., according to the Marin Independent Journal.
Peets began in the Bay Area, as a Berkeley shop in the ‘60s. Now it has 196 stores through six states and did more than $300 million in business.
