STANLEY, Sept. 7 — Wednesday night the Stanley Council and the Stanley Planning Commission will hold two consecutive public hearings related to the proposed construction of a three-unit apartment complex, or triplex, in a vacant lot adjacent to Tony’s Pizza on Aylor Grubbs Avenue.
Jim and Faye Ryan of Jordon Hollow Road in Stanley have filed a request with the Town of Stanley to rezone a lot in the 100 block of Aylor Grubbs Avenue from Medium Density Residential to High Density Residential. The Ryans have also submitted an application for a Special Use Permit to construct a three-unit apartment building on the property.
The current zoning would allow for two narrow houses, but the developer said his proposal would be more aesthetically pleasing for the town.
“I don’t think that would look good,” Jim Ryan told the Stanley Council during a presentation at the council’s Aug. 17 meeting. “I’m proposing to build a one-story building with two or three units…one building rather than two narrow houses. If that’s what works out and the price of lumber goes down, that’s what I’m planning on doing.”
Ryan previously developed apartment units on Hilltop Circle.
The public hearing on the rezoning request is set for 7 p.m., with the second public hearing on the special use permit at 7:15 p.m. Both public hearings will be held at the Stanley Fire Hall at 190 East Main Street.
The property in the 100 block of Aylor Grubbs Avenue is bordered by the following property owners:
• On the west by Robert and Debra Burns, John Domon and Christopher Cubbage;
• On the south by Hannah Enterprises LP;
• On the east by Gordon and Joyce Richards, and Benton and Wanda Shenk;
• On the north by William Hassett.
Citizens of the Town of Stanley are encouraged to attend the hearings and express their views.
