Council approves used car sales lot

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council voted Tuesday to grant a permit allowing a used car sales lot to open on Wesley Street.

The Planning and Zoning Commission voted last month to recommend approval of the issuance of a conditional use permit to Dean Bradley, representing Agrarius, LLC (dba EZ Auto), for the lot at 5900 Wesley Street.

The lot is adjacent to the intersection with Eastland Street and is across from American National Bank. The property is zoned for general retail, which allows for used automobile sales facilities with a conditional use permit.

City Planner Lance Estep noted the site is currently a vacant developed parcel of land with one small office building and two carports, which had previously been used as a used car sales facility for years.

Estep has recommended the Council grant the permit, provided the property owner paint the metal post fence black and remove the taller poles;, as well as resurface and restripe the parking area to city specifications, complete with traffic control pavement markings.

“They are looking to place some dense landscaping across both street frontages,” Estep said.

Estep cautioned that a conditional use permit remains with the land, rather than expiring should the business leave the location.

“It is permanently part of the property,” Estep explained, unless the Council voted to limit the permit.

Estep said of the surrounding property owners, two had said they were in favor of the measure, with none in opposition.

Bradley said he planned to sell a variety of used automobiles, costing between $5,000 and $20,000 each.

“I think it is a great use of that property,” said Council member Dan Perkins. “It is going to clean it up.”

The measure passed by a unanimous vote of the Council.
