WOODBURY – Kevin Barry, on behalf of Woodbury Saw & Mower and CL Adams, is seeking a special permit to add a truck share/rental offering to its business.
Although there have been, at times, two U-Haul box trucks on the property, not all of Barry’s business’s 47 Main St. S. neighbors are happy about business owner Kevin Barry’s business expansion plans.
As he is in the process of taking over neighboring business CL Adams, Barry, who owns Woodbury Saw & Mower, has added toys such as trucks and horses to his business’s offerings. The addition of U-Haul-branded moving and packing supplies to his business’s product line, and the truck rental offering, is a natural extension of the two co-existing businesses.
But at a Zoning Commission public hearing on Dec. 11, some of the neighbors spoke against Barry’s plan.
The neighbors are not happy that a U-Haul trucks has been parked in front of Woodbury Saw & Mower during the day. Neighbors have also complained that the trucks, even when parked in the back lot, are visible from Main Street.
Barry noted that he received a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Historic District Commission. Zoning Commission Chairman Robert Clarke added that the Historic District Commission does allow for the parking of one U-Haul truck, considered as a sign.
Barry told Just Woodbury that visibility also should not be an issue since they will be off the property when they are rented out to customer.
The public hearing will be continued at the Jan. 8 Zoning Commission meeting. The minutes from the Dec. 11 meeting follow:12-11-2018_Zoning_Comm_Min-1
