Apinwall Planning Commission recommends proposed bed and breakfast ordinance

Wednesday, May 14, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

The Aspinwall Planning Commission has recommended a proposed bed and breakfast ordinance for the borough.

Borough manager Melissa Lang said officials will begin discussion on whether to grant final approval to the proposal in June. The ordinance would allow bed and breakfasts as a conditional use in the borough's zoning district that stretches from Western to Brilliant avenues.

Karen Connor has expressed interest in buying a property at 111 Brilliant Ave. and turning it into a bed and breakfast.

PNC Bank building

Aspinwall officials granted a conditional use for parking at the former PNC Bank building on Brilliant Avenue.

The building is now owned by James Mitnick, who plans to move the office for his company, Ironwood Learning LLC, to the new location. The approval calls for parking spaces for his company to remain in leased spaces near the railroad tracks off of Freeport Road.

Mitnick said he has discussed with the borough planning commission to require any retail businesses that move into the first floor of the building to also have off street parking leased as part of the lease.
