More plans will need to be presented before a beauty salon can move into the former Red and White grocery store in Greensburg.

Members of the city's Historic and Architectural Review board told the building's owner, the Columbus Home Club Inc., they needed to see more detailed drawings of planned improvements for the exterior of the building at 643 N. Main St.

The board tabled a possible decision to its February meeting.

Board members said they wanted plans to show the entire building, which also houses a fitness gym and chiropractic office, including exterior signs.

“If it comes to us as a total package, we'd be able to make a better decision,” said Barbara Ciampini, a board member and city planner.

“I'd feel better ... if we had a global perspective of what you're doing,” she added.

Jeff Peterinelli, grand knight of the Knights of Columbus in Greensburg and president of Columbus Home — a property holding company for the Knights — agreed to return with a better drawing.

That rendering will include the sign for the chiropractic office, Peterinelli said.

City officials issued a notice of violation after the chiropractic sign was put up without approval, Ciampini said.

“A building like this, the real interest will come from signage,” said board member Lee Calisti, an architect.

Workers have begun interior work for the proposed Muse Salon, said Tim Zontek of BZ Construction.

Operators hoped to be in the salon this month, but the start-up date will be pushed back now for at least six weeks, Zontek said.

In another matter, the city board approved signs for Golden Treasures and the Massage Therapy and Wellness Center on the East Otterman side of the building at 101 N. Main St.
