Planning Board OK's LumberYard Ordinances
The board also green lights plans for a new nail salon and recommends signage changes for three other businesses.
Despite a couple of inadvertent procedural delays and a citizen-led petition, the Collingswood Planning Board officially signed off on the LumberYard redevelopment plan Monday night, clearing the way for the project to proceed formally.
The amended ordinances were resolved, unanimously, with all the flourish of a trip to the DMV, and then the board was on to other business, approving changes in signage for three businesses and a change of use plan for another.
Tommy Phan, who plans to open Kay's Nail and Spa at 616 Haddon Ave., was granted a change of use for the site, which was previously occupied by Simply Inviting, a stationery store. Phan plans for the business to operate from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. six days a week (closed on Sunday).
Twin Oaks Thrift Shop at 687 Haddon Ave. was granted a design waiver allowing the use of composite-board signage. Cricket Wireless at 684 Haddon Ave. was encouraged to increase the size of the lettering on its signage as well as outlining it to improve its visibility. Traveling Framers at 554 Haddon Ave. also received approval to adjust the placement of its signage for improved visibility.
