Malone Funeral Home
Welcome to the Malone Funeral Home parking lot expansion development project page, where you will find documents related to this project. The applicant is requesting a special use to allow the continued use of the property located at 324 E. State St. as a funeral home and to expand the funeral home parking lot onto the property located at 314 E. State St. The applicant is also requesting a variation from Section 11-6E-4(B) (Lot and Area Requirements) to decrease the required minimum street setback from 30 feet to 8 feet 6 inches, as well as a variation from Section 11-6E-4(B) to increase the maximum lot coverage from 70% to 74.3%. The applicant is also seeking approval to reduce the required interior parking lot landscaping from 10% to 4.3%.
A public hearing was held on July 22 before the Planning and Zoning Commission. The Commission unanimously recommended City Council approval for the requested Variations, Special Use, and reduction in interior parking lot landscaping. The Commission also unanimously recommended conditional approval of relief from parking lot lighting standards in the East State Street Design Guidelines. City Council considered the recommendations at its meeting on Monday, Aug. 2 and unanimously approved the requests as recommended.
