Giannillis receive OK from Unity planning commission
The Unity Township Planning Commission Tuesday recommended approval of a zoning change for a 4.6-acre parcel fronting Route 30 adjacent to Giannilli's II Restaurant and Lounge. Owners Dennis and Linda Giannilli requested changing zoning for the property, which is marked by a hilly terrain, from R-1 rural residential to B-2 community commercial, matching the designation for the couple's restaurant property.
Their attorney, Daniel Hudock, said the revised zoning would be consistent with most other frontage along Route 30 in the township and would open the possibility for a potential expansion of the business. He added that any development of the parcel would retain a topographical buffer between the restaurant and two nearby homes: “There's always going to be an elevation difference.”
Township Solicitor Gary Falatovich said the proposed zoning change will be considered by the township supervisors in a hearing at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 27.
