Salem ZBA makes way for auto businesses in Pelham Road building
The town’s Zoning Board of Adjustment recently approved a blanket variance for the building, but it did set stipulations that limit the hours that vehicles could be dropped off at the building, as well as regarding the overnight outdoor storage of vehicles at the site.
The request for the variance from Michael Young came on the heels of a ZBA approval last month allowing for indoor car sales and minor repairs in one unit of the building.
“That sounds like a full-blown repair shop,” countered ZBA Chairman Gary Azarian.
“I think of light repairs to be like an oil change or a brake job,” said Diantgikis.
Azarian said the stipulations limiting overnight vehicle drop-offs and storage should take care of some potential concerns. He also noted that future plans would have to go before the Planning Board for its approval.
