The Greer Board of Zoning Appeals approved Monday evening, with restrictions, Sam Todd’s request to make improvements to property at 101 and 103 Arlington Road to operate a tire shop.
The property is condemned and the improvements must bring the property up to code before the city begins demolition.
Glenn Pace, Planning and Zoning coordinator, told commissioners Todd has agreed to install “basic stockade fencing”, in 8-foot sections at the rear of the property to hide from view two 8 x 45 foot trailers to store tires. A third, smaller trailer will store tires for waste. “One concern is maybe two sections of fencing may be needed on the property facing the street,” Pace said.
Pace reminded Todd he needed a certificate of occupancy before starting his repairs.
A separate concern, said Pace, was the damage caused by a vehicle that drove through the building. The driver was uninsured and the building’s owner did not have enough insurance to cover all the damages.
The commissioners present were unanimous to allow Todd to proceed with the upfit under Pace’s direction. Tom McAbee, Mickey Montgomery, Keith Tumblin, Lynn Stewart and commission chair T.D. Campbell voted for approval. Loan Nelson and Glendora Massey were absent.
No other items were on the agenda.
