Three zoning cases presented at January mtg

The January public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development Committee met at Broad Ripple Methodist Church on January 26, 2010. There were three petitions on the agenda.
The first petition was #2009-UV2-037 for the property located at 6217 Broadway Street for a variance of use to establish a daycare use in an existing single-family dwelling, for the employees of Broad Ripple Animal Clinic (BRAC). BRAC has been in business for 25 years and has been at 6225 Broadway since 1995. BRAC recently bought the 6217 location to offer daycare for their 54 employees. No signs are needed and the exterior will continue to look like a house. BRAC has stated that there is a limit of 12 children allowed in the program. The committee voted to support this petition.
The next petition was #2009-UV1-023 for property located at 6043 College Avenue for a variance of use to provide for an office within an existing building with a gravel parking area, and a four-foot tall 6-square foot ground sign. The property is currently zoned D-5 which covers single and two-family residences. The north half of the double has been an office for about a year. This variance would legally establish that office and allow for a second office use in the south half. The exterior would remain residential in appearance except for the small unlit ground sign. The committee voted to support this petition.
The last petition was #2009-UV1-041 for property located at 6169 College Avenue for a variance of use to provide for a spa offering beauty and esthetic services including make-up, facials, manicures, pedicures, therapeutic massages, hair styling and removal, and retail sales of beauty and heath products, and a 3-foot tall 14.01 square foot free-standing sign, with a 10.67 foot setback and off-street parking provided. This is the property that most recently housed the Red Rose Vintage Clothing store.
A neighboring property owner appeared at the meeting to oppose the petition. Accounts of several problems with the landlord and previous tenants were detailed. After a long discussion and the agreement of the petitioner to make some changes to the parking lot, the committee voted to support the petition.
It was announced that the petition for 1030 Kessler Boulevard, that has presented to this committee on a number of occasions, has reduced the number of units proposed to two. The new zoning hearing for that case is April 7. The petitioner plans to present the new proposal at the 6pm, February 23, 2010, BRVA committee meeting at Broad Ripple Methodist Church.
