1128 S. 5th StreetR-5(b), General Residence and Office District, Section 155.021 Reclassify property to S-1, Neighborhood Commercial and Office District, Section 155.030, and a variance of section 155.098, Required Accessory Off-Street Parking Spaces: Retail or Service Establishments not otherwise covered by this subchapter. Petitioners desires to update the interior and exterior of the building and lease it to an already established local tattoo parlor and requests reclassification and a variance to allow zero accessory off-street parking spaces instead of the 5 spaces required and allow the long time continued use of parking along the right-of-way along Vine Street to serve as parking for the business. Petitioner additionally requests that if reclassification is not granted, that a use variance to allow a tattoo parlor be considered. PJ Staab, Springfield; Kent Massie, Leland Grove Recommend denial as submitted. Recommends approval of a use variance in the R-5(b) district to permit a tattoo parlor due to the property's long-standing use as a commercial property, providing there is a closing time of 9:00 pm. Pertaining to the off-street parking variance, the subject property is a small lot that was constructed as a residence. Its continued use as a residence is questionable given the office and commercial trend along this segment of S. 5th Street. It is appropriate to expect that a small business would use a small number of parking spaces on Vine Street. There are at least two other businesses on the Vine Street block between 5th & 6th Street which have on-street parking. Concur with staff and deny the petition as submitted and grant a use variance
