Supporters and opponents of a towing company's plans to relocate on Lake Street must wait yet another month to learn the fate of its request.
Thomas Reitz, the attorney for Baker's Towing & Auto Repair, requested and received a postponement of the Kent Board of Zoning Appeals decision on the company's request for a substitution of a non-conforming use certificate, which would allow his business to relocate to a piece of property zoned R-3 for residential use at 634 Lake St.
The zoning board will discuss the issue and vote on the request at its Aug. 20 meeting.
It had been scheduled for action by the zoning board, but no further public comment, at Monday's meeting.
The postponement is the second delay in a final decision on the request from the zoning board.
After several hours of testimony at the June meeting members of the zoning board voted to delay their decision — also at Reitz's suggestion — until their next meeting, which is set for Monday. That meeting included several hours of testimoney from neighbors opposing the relocation and supporters of the proposal.
