Public meetings

Mr. Keesler stated staff recommended approval with the conditions in Exhibit A.

Member Anderson asked how the number of spaces was calculated and if the parking being proposed was adequate for the future.


Mr. Keesler responded as much as possible was fit on the site and still is within compliance of the code.
Amy Ramsey, OV Transit Administrator, stated the minimum spaces the RTA was looking for was 100, this plan exceeds that number by two and stated this would be adequate.  

Mr. Wagner, OV resident, stated his concern for safety because of the lack of signage at the driveway to the funeral home.  He asked the DRB to consider directional sign access before the driveway to the funeral home.  Mr. Wagner stated he was pleased with the proposal for the Park and Ride facility.

Mr. Keesler stated the town is hesitant to give directional sign to private businesses, and there are zoning code issues that will be addressed at a later date.
