The Jamestown Post-Journal is reporting this morning that a new car dealership will be able to open on Fairmount Ave. in Lakewood. That after the Lakewood Village Board Monday night approved a special-use permit for a used-car lot across from Wal-Mart, with 12 conditions attached. The criteria was agreed to by the business – Larry Spacc Auto dealers – which has been in operation since 1956, and already has two locations in the north county.
The approval by the board comes after it had initially denied a special-use permit application last November, although that was quickly overturned by Supreme Court Justice James Dillon.
The board – along with several residents – have said they were concerned with the car lot opening for a couple of reasons. Some cite safety concerns because it is near a busy intersection, while others question the location being the best spot for a dealership. However, Justice Dillon states the board couldn’t deny the permit based on concerned residents.
