11/21/2018 - Greensburg Board of Zoning Appeals Meeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg Board of Zoning Appeals met Tuesday evening and considered 3 petitions. Leslie Thackery, representing Gilliland Howe Funeral Home, requested a sign variance on the property at 110 E. North Street. The new sign will consist of a video screen that will provide video and electronic messages. The sign is approximately 7 inches taller than the current sign. The board approved the request 5-0.

Shawn Tobin, representing Tobin's Towing Services at 332 W. Main Street, requested a special exception for truck rental, as well as RV, ATV, and auto sales as allowed in a B-3 Heavy Construction District. The property is now zoned B-1 Central Business District. Mr. Tobin had originally requested a permanent exception, but informed the board that he has purchased property on Liberty Circle where he expects to move his business in the next year. As a result, he changed the request to an additional year of the special exception that was approved on September 19th, 2017. The board approved the request 4-1, with Steve Ramer voting against the request.

True North Property Management, LLC of Greenfield, Indiana, requested a permitted exception to allow a church in an I-1 zoning area which is a prohibited use under the Greensburg Code of Ordinances. Chris Stephen represented True North Property Management on behalf of One Hope Church and Devin Brown/Change Fitness. The property is located at 1032 N. Anderson Street. The building would be divided between One Hope Church and Change Fitness with one connecting door on 3 parcels of property. Mr. Stephen noted that the location is in a high crime rate area and approval of the request could be beneficial to the city since there are no churches within a reasonable distance. He noted that locating the church in the area could be a deterrent to crime and could also permit the prosecutor's office to pursue legal enhancement for crimes near a church. The board approved the permitted exception by a 4-1 vote contingent on meeting appropriate building and fire codes, with Steve Ramer voting against the request.

The board will hold its next meeting on December 18th at 7:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
