The city's Board of Appeals on Thursday unanimously approved a variance that would allow a north-side shopping center to retain a 145-year-old farmhouse on the site.
On a 4-0 vote, the board approved a variance that would allow the developers of Stonewood Village to put a drive aisle within 25 feet of the city right of way along Capitol Drive. Original plans for redevelopment at the center called for the drive aisle to be farther north, forcing the demolition of the circa-1865 farmhouse.
As part of the approval, the board included a provision that the variance would expire upon demolition of the home, meaning the developer would at that time have to redo the drive aisle to comply with city codes.
Developer 4S will bring its revised plan to the Plan Commission for a vote Monday. The commission meeting starts at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 2000 N. Calhoun Road.
