As the March vote on Measure S nears, one business is taking a drastic step to drum up support.

Christine and Gareth Kantner, owners of French bistro Café Stella, have swapped out the infamous Sunset Junction sign in Silver Lake with a message urging residents to vote for Measure S, L.A. Weekly reported.

The Kantners have been fighting against a proposed development known as Junction Gateway across the street from their nighttime hotspot for years. The mixed-use development comprising of three buildings would feature creative offices, apartment units and ground floor retail.

A spokesman for the Silver Lake development said Measure S would have no impact on the project because the developers are not seeking a zoning change or General Plan amendment, according to L.A. Weekly.

The restaurateurs have been vocal supporters of Measure S, also known as the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative. The measure would halt all development that requires a change to L.A.’s General Plan — which given its outdated zoning code, includes most projects. [LA Weekly] — Subrina Hudson
