OLD BUSINESS:

 

PB-10-18 Furdey Wilcox Road

 

Tatyana Furdey was present to address the board on behalf of the application. Ms. Furdey explained that she is looking to relocate her trucking company to Macedon. She explained that her company has eleven 18 wheel trucks that transport freight from coast to coast. She would like the new building to be the home terminal for her company with an office for two employees and storage room. She explained that with the trucks traveling to all different states, they can take weeks to make it back to the home terminal. She mentioned that the repairs done on the vehicles are outsourced and they would not be working on them at the home terminal.

 

One of the neighbors, Harold Waggoner, was present to express his concerns on the application. He stated that he is not in favor of tractor trailers going up and down the road or equipment being stored outside. He mentioned that the property used to be residential and that no one wants anything Industrial on the street. He recommended that the business build on Quaker with the other Industrial buildings.
