The Greensburg Board of Zoning Appeals met on Tuesday.
The board elected their officers. The president is Matt Whitaker and the Vice President is Roy Middendorf.
Evan Manship came to the board to request a parking variance at the Old St. Mary’s church at 206 S East Street. Manship and his wife Emily, who is a long time St. Mary’s parish member, recently bought the property and would like to turn it into an events center for mainly weddings. They recognize a need for a space like this in the community, and they plan to specifically use the church building for these events. They have no plans to demolish the school building and will most likely use it as storage space for the time being. They are currently looking at multiple options for more parking space, including purchasing another lot. Mayor Joshua Marsh showed his support for the project as well as his concerns with how parking will go. Andrew Beats, the business manager for the St. Mary’s parish, expressed his full support of the project. Neighbor Stephen Foster asked if his driveway, which connects into the parking lot, will be blocked in any way and the answer was no. The board tabled this until a definitive plan with number of parking spots could be presented.
