EXETER — The Exeter Borough Zoning Hearing Board will hold a public hearing tonight concerning a zoning variance application.
The application was submitted by JWV Exeter LP for the property at 1950 Wyoming Ave., currently located in the highway business district (B-3). The application seeks a variance to use approximately 20,500 square feet of space within the existing structure for manufacturing purposes.
Officials from JWV Exeter LP initially submitted a zoning permit application and plot plan, but it was denied in February due to the building being located in B-3 zoning.
Some of those manufacturing purposes include small metal fabrication and powder coating. Documents in the application indicate the company is a sub-contractor for other companies and does not “make, market or sell a finished consumer product.”
Borough zoning officer Dominick Pepe said the building used to be used by the Rex Shoe Factory and Kurlancheek Furniture. Documents indicated the property was previously a manufacturing plant, was rezoned and would need to be rezoned again.
