Board member Gardner made a motion to approve, Board member Aldred seconded and this variance was approved unanimously.


Board member Aldred asked counsel if other applicants could have their applications streamlined so they do not have to come before this board numerous times. Engineer Woodroof stated that due to this situation and ordinances being passed that pertained to carwashes, this would procedure was best for this applicant. Counsel stated that it could have requested a variance and conditional use in one meeting.


Mr. Rawls then asked the board about the 70’ maximum set back from Nolensville Road. He asked if the state widens the road would that affect the set-backs. Engineer Woodroof stated that the permission to move the building would have to go before this board. The decision would be based on the current road construction. There was extensive discussion on the 70’ set back and the process of going before the Planning Commission in May and June.
