On Feb. 28, the Moscow Borough Planning Commission sent a letter to Lyn Gruber, property owner of 101 and 104 Church Street, Moscow, suggesting that she resubmit her land development plans for a new parking lot at 104 Church Street.
Gruber, through her engineer George Parker, has been looking to obtain a Highway Occupancy Permit (HOP) for a driveway she is proposing for the property so that her tenants at 101 Main Street have a place to park. Currently, the tenants are using borough parking across the street.
The HOP has not been granted as of this writing, but it may be soon. The borough had changed their parking ordinance, partly to accommodate Gruber, and as a result of the changed ordinance, there is now no parking allowed on either side of Church Street.
This letter comes at the recommendation of Planning Consultant Mary Liz Donato at the Feb. 25 meeting of the planning commission as Gruber's land development plans had not been formally accepted.
In the letter, the Chairman of the Moscow Borough Planning Commission recommended that due to the inactivity (due at least in part to the absence of an HOP) that her plans be resubmitted. Upon the date of acceptance of the plan, a new 90 day review process will begin.
Gruber will not have to submit additional fees.
