A couple of blocks to the west, a Gordon-Van Tine package house that had been extensively vandalized was razed in August 2013 at Palmetto Avenue and Hickory Road.

“Given that the web site is permitted to have commercial employs previously, the proposed very low-influence use is more compatible with close by household than other utilizes permitted by proper in C-2 (lodge, motel, restaurants, motor vehicle profits, retail, indoor recreation, etcetera.),” Tedrow said in the e mail.

“The style and design of the residence has been thoughtfully and meticulously laid out to mitigate any compatibility worries and provides an appropriate and essential changeover among household households to the north and the a lot more intense commercial uses about the house,” she explained.
