Auto shop, lot line recommended

A Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for an auto repair shop and a request to adjust a lot line at a Cartersville Road were both recommended for approval by the Cumberland County Planning Commission during its meeting April 22.

According to the commission meeting board packet, applicant Willie Bullock is interested in converting his shop at 6533 Blenheim Road into a commercial garage called Rt. 606 Truck & Auto.

The permit would include three conditions, according to the meeting board packet, which includes meeting all local, state and federal regulations, having no more than 10 vehicles sitting outside the shop at one time, and enforcing noise restrictions between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily.

The permit was initially discussed during the March planning commission meeting but was moved to April’s meeting. A public hearing was held during the April meeting, in which no members of the public spoke.

A lot line adjustment at two properties on Cartersville Road was recommended for approval by the Cumberland County Planning Commission.

The two properties at the 1100 block of Cartersville Road are owned by the same person, Darlene Fower.

“As the property lines stand, the driveway and an accessory building on tax map parcel (TMP) 29-A-59A are encroaching on the property line of TMP 29-A-60,” the staff report by Cumberland County Planning & Zoning Director J.P. Duncan said. “This CUP would allow for a lot line adjustment that would resolve these encroachments.”

According to Duncan, “neither lot will be subdivided without meeting the standards in Cumberland County Code, nor will boundary lines be adjusted to cause either lot to become smaller and more non-conforming in the future.”

He also said the lot line adjustment would not cause any lot to become less than 1 acre in area.
