First Farm Credit Services wants to build at 54th and State Streets
At Tuesday night's Plan Commission meeting, many items were on the agenda for the night and everything was approved.
The Crossing Church sought a special permit that would allow a property at 917 Monroe Street to be used for children's church activities, mainly for Sunday school. The Crossing owns the church building adjacent to the east and says that space is limited and that use of the residence would allow kindergarten through 5th grade children to have a facility separate from pre-K children. There will be no changes to the house's structure and additional fencing will be installed on the east side and at the rear of the property.
Also, motion was approved for First Farm Credit Services, who requested consolidation of 2 parcels located northwest of the intersection of South 54th and State Streets into a single tract to be known as "Farm Credit Services Subdivison" under the "small tracts" provision of the subdivision ordinance. A bank building is proposed for development on the property.
In other business, Dale Steinkamp represented Yingling Services at the meeting, who requested approval of a planned development special permit to lease property at 901 North 54th Street and operate it as a carpet cleaning and disaster recovery business. The 50-ft. by 64-ft. building would house vehicles, equipment, and cleaning agents and there would be very little walk-in customer traffic.
The proposed business would appear to be less intensive in terms of traffic, parking needs, business hours and staff on the premises than the retail use that was allowed by the previous planned development permit so the Commission had no problem approving the request.
All matters approved by Plan Commission go to City Council on Monday.
