CEDAR LAKE | The Plan Commission got its first look at plans for a new and improved La Gaviota Wednesday night.

The owners of La Gaviota, an ethnic grocer currently located at 10800 W. 133rd Ave., are planning to move their business into a building they’ve purchased next door. The move is a redevelopment project, said Town Manager Ian Nicolini. It also allows owner Teresa Barajas and her husband to relocate their business from a rental space.

The widening of 133rd Avenue will include new parallel parking in front of La Gaviota and neighboring businesses, Nicolini said. The new site also contains 24 spaces of additional parking. This is good news, Commissioner Greg Parker said. “There have been times I wanted to stop there and I couldn’t get in there (because of parking).”

The Barajases are seeking preliminary plat approval to establish a one-lot subdivision at 10728 W. 133rd Ave. They are also seeking a variance from the Board of Zoning Appeals that would allow them to open a small eatery in the store.

La Gaviota sells Mexican food and meat, in addition to conventional grocery items.
