COLLINSVILLE – The owner of 5 River Road has filed an application for a used car dealership but said he continues to market the property for other potential uses.
Stephen Roberto has filed an application at the land use office, proposing the use of a used car dealership with 30 spaces for vehicles, 7 parking spaces, two dark-sky compliant light fixtures and the ability to use two existing bays for limited repair and inspection.
The application comes after a Burlington resident seeking to run a used car dealership decided not to pursue the business. The proposed use was already controversy but the withdrawal came amidst a flurry of controversy. (See this week’s Valley Press for more details).
Now Roberto is pursuing a special exception that would allow the use on the property, The proposal is slated for a public hearing on Feb. 15. However, Roberto is also entertaining other proposals for the property, which is “offered for lease.” Currently Dentfix Express operates at the site.
