Planning Board recommends against change

Plans for a convenience store on Route 108 near Manor Lane hit a second snag yesterday when the county Planning Board recommended against a zoning change needed for the project.

The decision follows the same recommendation by the Department of Planning and Zoning. Several local residents also had testified against the rezoning petition.

Property owner Joseph Tringali proposed changing two acres on the north side of Route 108 from rural conservation to local business zoning.

But board members said Mr. Tringali had not produced sufficient evidence to justify a zoning change. By law, such a change could occur only if the property's current zoning was a mistake or if the character of the neighborhood had changed since comprehensive rezoning of the western county in September.

The Planning Board's recommendation will be given to the county Zoning Board, which will make the final decision on the petition. A hearing date has not been scheduled.
