At Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, only 2 items were on the agenda and both were approved.
First on the agenda, Anthony W. Williams requested a Special Permit to use property located at 439 North 3rd Street for vehicle and sales service. In each of the Downtown Districts, a special use permit is required to operate a "vehicle sales or service facility."
A used car lot and service garage has operated under a special use permit since 2005. There are two buildings on the property and Williams plans to demolish one and build a 2,100 sq. ft. building with two wash bays and offices in its place. Motion did carry and the request was approved.
Also, Robert H. Berger, of Berger Properties, LLC, requested a zoning change from M1 (Light Industrial) to D5 (Downtown Industrial) for property located at 220 Oak St. The property is in two zoning districts because it is an el-shaped, double-frontage parcel between Oak and Pine Streets.
Rezoning of the M1 portion of the property to the D5 classification was being sought to allow more flexibility in positioning buildings. The Commission approved the request.
In other business, amendments to the Land Use Plan will be talked about at next month's meeting. Some amendments discussed included sizes of political signs and the definition for backlit signs.
All matters approved by the Plan Commission go to City Council on Monday.
