RESCHEDULED FROM APRIL 14, 2004

Approved, despite 3 members of the public seeking to have the application denied.  Residents cited noise problems, traffic congestion, fire truck access, unsightlyness, etc.  Board members responed that the site is zoned for light industrial use, including the proposed construction warehouse.  Apparently the warehouse will only accommodate 2 of the 5 vehicles currently stored on the open lot.  Residents argued that while there are landscaping yards in the neighborhood, there are no construction yards with heavy equipment and the neighborhood has be improving, moving away from light industrial.  The applicant argued that some coverage of the existing equipment is better than none at all.  The application was approved with two board members voting against it.
