Planning board slated to host public hearings
JOHNSTOWN — The city Planning Board will conduct public hearings on two projects at 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Council Chambers of City Hall.
The board will conduct a hearing on a project by City Line Storage, 564 North Perry St. The hearing will be to comment on a new, access-controlled storage facility.
City Line Storage wants to construct an access-controlled facility to be located on a 1.88-acre parcel. Currently, the site is graded with no existing structures present. Two rows of storage units are proposed to be erected on site.
Officials said the proposed development of the lot will be consistent with the look of the existing storage facility owned by City Line, which lies just to the east at the intersection with North Perry and Snyder streets. The new storage units will be located above the roadway, which will reduce the visibility to vehicles driving by the facility.
The site will include 25-foot asphalt paved access isles through the middle, back and right sides. According to the project narrative, drainage will be wholly contained on-site via grassed swales on each side of the exterior isles that will slope to the back, heavily vegetated portion, of the property. A guide railing will be installed.
Planning board members will also conduct a public hearing on a 4XHeaven, Inc. project at 509 North Perry St. The Gloversville business wants to relocate its truck repair business to Johnstown and build a 50-foot by 120-foot addition.
The board may take final action to approve the projects after the hearings.
