Subject: (EXCP-6-13-2363) Special Exception Use request to operate Auto/Truck sales on less than 2 acres located at 170 Brennan Road.

Rick Jones, AICP
Director, Planning Department

On 6/17/2013, Jimmy Tong submitted a Special Exception Use application to allow for the operation of an auto sales dealership on less than 2 acres. The property is located in a LMI (Light Manufacturing Industrial) zoning district. The site for the proposed dealership is approximately 0.5 acres. Auto/Truck sales, new and used, in excess of two (2) acres are allowed in GC zoning district. In the other hand, Auto/Truck sales, new and used, in excess of one-half (1/2) acre but less than two (2) acres, shall be located as a special exception use as provided in Section 3.1.1 of the Unified Development Ordinance.

Attached is a land use map showing the location of the property along with the proposed site plan. The Planning Department has included the request on Council August 13th’s agenda. A staff report will be sent to the Clerk of Council prior to the scheduled meeting.
