Proposed Jiffy Lube in Ohio Faces Delays
Nov. 23, 2022—A proposed Jiffy Lube location in Ohio has faced multiple delays, according to Cleveland.com.
The plan for a Strongsville location was tabled by the Planning Commission back in October due to the need for a wetlands study at the site. The commission anticipates that it might know more about the exact conditions of the wetlands and their potential impact on the site in January.
The location is proposed to be almost 3,000 square feet with four service bays. Curb cuts would need to be made in two nearby streets. This proposed location, which was first brought to the table in May, would need two zoning variances.
"Under city code, the building must be set back at least 125 feet from the middle of Pearl. The proposed Jiffy Lube would be set back 96 feet," according to Cleveland.com. "Also under code, the parking lot must be set back at least 20 feet from Broxton. The Jiffy Lube lot would be set back 10 feet."
Ultimately, the commission rejected this site in May. In June, the site was proposed to be positioned further away from nearby homes. A 6-foot-high wall was included in this plan for property separation, and it was advised that the plan ensured Jiffy Lube's lights would not impact nearby homes.
The city's Board of Zoning & Building Code Appeals approved these variances, but in July the project's sign package was rejected. In October, a revised plan for signage was approved that also included other site plans.The district for this proposed location is a general business district that only allows service centers like Jiffy Lube on a "case-by-case basis," according to Cleveland.com.
