Classic Furniture (Arthur Cox)/Kannon LLC

 

Proposal

The applicant proposes to display furniture outdoors in two areas measuring approximately 20 x 20 in an existing parking lot on the north side of the Classic Furniture building.

 

Background:

The intent of the special use permit requirement is based on potential impacts to the Entrance Corridor. The ARB has reviewed this proposal for its impact on the Route 29 North Entrance Corridor. The ARB had no objection to the request for the Special Use Permit and has recommended conditions of approval. 

 

Discussion/Findings:

By limiting the type and method of display, and by adding planting to the site, the impacts of the proposed furniture display are expected to be limited and the overall development is expected to be compatible with the district.

 

Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of this Special Use Permit with conditions related to the type and method of display, illumination, and planting.
