Bed and breakfast planned for Connellsville

| Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013, 7:44 p.m.

The Connellsville Planning Commission on Tuesday approved the site plan for a proposed bed and breakfast in the city.

Connellsville City Councilman Tom Karpiak told the board about his plans to convert the former New Haven Collectables at 806 W. Crawford Ave. into a bed and breakfast.

“It's for the transient bike-trail people,” Karpiak said.

Karpiak said no further construction will be needed for the proposed six-room bed and breakfast, which does not yet have a name.

Each bedroom will have its own bathroom and shower.

Only breakfast will be provided to the guests.

No parking will be added. Vehicles would have to park on the street, but Karpiak said most of the guests will be arriving on bicycle.

The board approved the site review, which will be sent to the county for final approval.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
