Tuesday evening the Plymouth Board of Zoning Appeals approved the variance request of Tim Pletcher to allow a warehouse in the Traditional Residential Zone.
Planning Director Ralph Booker told BZA members the property was the former recycling center and was zoned commercial until a major rezoning event in 2008 when it was changed to residential.
The existing warehouse building sits next to two rail lines at the end of Second Street.
Pletcher is a distributor for NUDURA Styrofoam concrete forms and will use the property to maintain his inventory. He anticipated one to two semi deliveries a month and typically will use a flatbed trailer pulled by a pickup truck to deliver the product to construction sites.
During the public hearing Dennis Cripe who operated DAC Enterprises at 400 Lake Avenue, basically across the railroad track from this location was in favor to the variance. He noted the improvements being made to the property.
The Plymouth BZA unanimously approved the variance of use to allow the warehouse in a traditional residential zone at 111 N. Second Street.
