Petitioner Phillip McCorkle on behalf of Whitaker @ Charlton Lane, LLC (Owner) is requesting a special use permit to operate a restaurant at 348 Whitaker Street. Special use permits are required for restaurants within the D-R (Downtown-Residential) zoning district. As outlined in Sec. 3.10 of the Zoning Ordinance, the special use permit process includes consideration by the Planning Commission and then the Mayor and Aldermen. Additional conditions, restrictions and safeguards may be imposed by Mayor and Aldermen on the special use approval to protect public health, safety and welfare.
The subject property is located in the Whitaker Street Design District and is a commercial structure fronting on the eastern side of Whitaker Street between West Charlton Lane and West Jones Street. The space is being used as a conforming specialty retail store selling home goods, furniture, and apparel. A portion of the business also functions as an interior design studio. The current owner of the business--Erika Snayd--intends to serve light meals to residents and shoppers in the area from the retail portion of the business.
