He would like to build a pole barn on the property for the storage and maintenance of his tow trucks. Barn will be approximately 40' x 80', store 4-5 trucks and be located behind the residence. There is vacant land on either side of the parcel with muckland/farmland to the rear. No towed/damaged vehicles will be stored on the premises.
