PLANNING 08-30-17
The Board considered a request for a one-year extension to the approval of CUP-15-00229, a Conditional Use Permit for Burning Barrel, a specialty butcher shop, located on approximately 30 acres at 292 N 2100 Road. The request was submitted by Brian Strecker, Burning Barrel LLC, property owner of record. The application was approved by the Board of County Commissioners on 8/12/15. Mary Miller, Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Staff, presented the item. 

Per Section 12-319-2 of the Zoning Regulations, if a building permit is not obtained for the site within one year of the Commission’s approval of the CUP application, the approval becomes null and void unless an extension is required prior to that date. Miller stated this is the second request for extension. The business is not currently operating. Requirement for the CUP have been met though the parking and driveway has not been installed and cannot until the building is complete. According to the applicant the building is unique and taking longer than expected.

It was the consensus of the Board that the applicant is genuine in his request and working toward an end product.

Gaughan opened the item for public comment. No comment was received.
