The Connellsville Planning Commission recommended approval of five site reviews for projects in the city, including two new businesses and the railroad display museum and canteen.

The businesses to be housed in the same building, 105 and 107 S. Pittsburgh St., are a tattoo shop named Ink Slingers, owned by Randy Kimmel, and a computer shop owned by Chris Keys.

The tattoo shop will be in the former location of the Trophy Den, which has moved to Apple Street.

“It's a great storefront being used in the city,” said Tom Currey, the city's zoning and code officer.

Currey said the location is zoned so there are no parking requirements for the applicants, and they've met all other requirements.

For the railroad display, the commission approved Fayette County Cultural Trust to start the installation of a kitchen in the rear of the building for the Connellsville Canteen Coffee Shop section.

The building, at 139 W. Crawford Ave., was constructed last year to house a 25-by-50-foot model train display that was moved into the city from Farmington.

“We're grateful to have two new businesses come into town,” said board member Jim Stefano. “And I can't wait for the coffee shop to open.”

Other approved projects include a retaining wall along 114 N. Prospect St. and a fence along West Gibson Avenue.

All the projects must get final approval from Fayette County.
