GREENVILLE — A used car lot proposed for a location on Joe Ramsey Boulevard could receive final approval this week.

The Greenville City Council intends to consider whether to grant a conditional use permit for the business during Tuesday’s regular agenda, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street. A work session is also set for 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Bobby Stovall, representing Barrett Motors, is seeking a conditional use permit to allow a used auto sales facility at an unaddressed location on Joe Ramsey Boulevard, between Interstate 30 and Jack Finney Boulevard, across from Wesley United Methodist Church.

The property is currently undeveloped and is zoned general retail which allows for automobile sales with a conditional use permit. The plan shows a 3,000 square foot office building and a 4,800 square foot service shop surrounded by parking and vehicular display areas. Landscape areas are shown along the east and west portions of the property.

The Planning and Zoning Commission voted unanimously last month to recommend approval of the permit to the Council, which will conduct a second public hearing and take a final vote on the matter.
