COLLINSVILLE — A Burlington resident is looking to establish a used car dealership at 5 River Road in Collinsville.
Lava Motors, owned by Zolfikar Ezzeddine of Burlington, is looking to sell vehicles at the .47- acre site with a 1,300-square-foot building, which sits at the corner of a v-shaped intersection of Route 179 in Collinsville.
The application proposes 33 spaces for the used vehicles and seven additional for employee and customer parking. It also proposes two “dark sky compliant” light fixtures.
The application has been noticed for a public hearing at the next planning and zoning commission meeting, set for 7:30 p.m. at the Canton Community Center, 40 Dyer Ave., on Jan. 17, 2017. However, Neil S. Pade, the town’s director of planning and community development, said there are many items due to be heard that night and it is possible some could be postponed or continued.
Please see more details in the Jan. 12 version of the Valley Press.
