Salisbury Planning Board has two public hearings today
By David Purtell
Public hearings involving additional parking at Richard’s Bar-B-Q and rezoning along Jake Alexander Boulevard South are on the agenda for today’s Salisbury Planning Board meeting.
Richard’s Bar-B-Q on North Main Street is requesting to have land it received after the demolition of the Shulenburger home — to make way for the new school central office — rezoned to highway business so an additional 11 parking spaces can be installed at the restaurant. The land is about 3/4 of an acre and is currently zoned downtown mixed-use. Richard’s is on the 500 block of North Main Street.
The board meets at 4 p.m. at City Hall.
Linda Sanders is requesting that 1.3 acres of vacant land she owns along Jake Alexander Boulevard South and east of Faith Road be rezoned from general residential to corridor mixed-use. The parcel is on the north side of Jake Alexander Boulevard.
Corridor mixed-use does not allow for houses. Instead, townhouses and apartments, along with commercial buildings, are allowed. The city’s staff report on the request does not indicate what, if anything, Sanders plans to do with the property.
The north side of the parcel is adjacent to residential units on Woody Avenue. The land to the east is vacant and to the west is property along Faith Road.
