Garage will open in front of Greenhill Addition

SWEETWATER-A owner will be allowed to use a garage at the Vonore Road and Sunset Drive intersection as a repair shop for buses, but cannot expand the operation to a lot behind the garage.

The topic first came up at the end of 2012 when a rezoning request came before the Sweetwater Regional Planning Commission and the City Commission. The commercial rezoning request for the lots at the front of the Greenhill Addition failed for a lack of a motion at the December City Commission meeting.

But during Monday's Planning Commission workshop, City Planner Scott Wilson said the smaller lot with the garage can be used for the bus repair shop since it was grandfathered in before a previous residential rezoning. He stressed the repair business will not be allowed to expand to the lot behind the garage, as it is not zoned for a repair shop and is not grandfathered in either.
