(Plain Press, July 2016) At its June 20th meeting, the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) considered a proposal by Dave Ferrante to change the former Komorowski Funeral Home at 2258 Professor Avenue in the Tremont neighborhood into a restaurant and book store. Lack of sufficient parking held up the BZA’s ratifying the proposal.
Based on its square footage, the project would require 27 parking spaces, it currently has 19. Ferrante noted two options he was considering for the additional eight parking places. Signing a valet parking agreement with Tremont West Development Corporation or securing use of the back yard of a neighboring property. The BZA told Ferrante they were prepared to approve the project if he could show a five-year lease for the additional parking spaces, or a signed five-year agreement for valet parking.
