The NAC (Neighborhood Advisory Council) met on April 11th at 2nd Baptist Church to hear two zoning cases.
The group heard a presentation from the owner of 1708 Orthodox street who wants to build a one story garage/storage facility on the property for his contracting business. He needs a zoning variance for this use of the property. Members expressed concern about the traffic in the residential area. The vote taken was to not support the request for the variance.
The owner of 4731 Griscom Street made his case for a Crown Fried Chicken take out store. He needs a zoning variance for that type of business. The location is at the corner of Griscom and Oxford and the entrance would actually be on the Oxford Avenue side of the building. Members raised the issue of the store hours and the fact that the 4700 block of Griscom is a residential area. The vote was unanimous against supporting the variance.
The next NAC meeting is scheduled for Thursday May 9th at 2nd Baptist Church at 1801 Meadow Street.
