John Jackson’s closing statement
Finding of Facts
Councilman Migut - I think it is a good application and a compatible use with the conforming use in the zone and the removal of the curb cuts on Route 35 south is a plus. The business is self-regulating and the variances can be granted without substantial detriment to the public good and Master Plan. In favor of the application
