LAKEWOOD – The Jamestown Post-Journal is reporting this morning that the Lakewood Village Board has tabled the decision on issuing a special-use permit to another used-car lot.
Earlier this month a public hearing was held for the special-use permit request for a permit for a used-car lot and office at 266 E. Fairmount Ave. The project is being proposed by Daniel Johnson of Jamestown. Lakewood Mayor David Wordelmann said a couple of people spoke during the public hearing about traffic concerns in the area, which is next to the businesses of KFC and Taco Bell.
After the public hearing, Wordelmann said the board decided to table the decision on the car lot because of several issues, including a plan by the owner to use a currently standing garage as his office. Wordelmann said the rest of the building is in poor shape and village officials would like Johnson to tear down the building before it issues a special-use permit .
