BREVARD COUNTY • MALABAR, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – A small town zoning issue that touches on concerns about coastal preservation, has given some unwanted attention to the City of Malabar.
A townhall meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Monday is expected to include the final vote.
The owners of the Yellow Dog Café restaurant would like to expand and become a boutique bed and breakfast.
The Yellow Dog located on the Indian River Lagoon offers romantic views and highly acclaimed meals, but because of long-standing zoning restrictions, it can’t get any bigger.
That is unless the City of Malabar approves a re-zoning order.
Hundreds of residents are opposed to that, and have signed petitions calling on officials to tell Yellow Dog “no.”
