SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATION

The applicant is requesting a Conditional Use Permit to establish a Vehicle Storage Facility for recreational vehicles as a secondary business at 2539 Grant Avenue. The proposal includes reallocating 47 parking spaces of the existing parking lot for the public storage of recreational vehicles. The existing wind turbine manufacturing and repair facility would remain, along with its required parking and loading. Staff has recommended conditions of approval to ensure the two uses are accommodated effectively and the property is maintained in good condition. Staff believes that, with the recommended Conditions of Approval, the proposed use would operate in an orderly manner on the property without detriment or burden to the mix of uses in the area and would be compatible with the purposes of the IG zoning district.

Staff recommends that the Board of Zoning Adjustments adopt Resolution 2021-001, approving a Conditional Use Permit (PLN20-0001) for 2539 Grant Ave based on the Findings of Fact and subject to the recommended Conditions of Approval.
