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.
