The construction of a new Jiffy Lube located in a Lowe’s parking lot has been proposed in Amsterdam, New York, Recorder News reports.
The proposed store would measure roughly 2,984 square feet and come equipped with four bays.
The town’s Planning Board received a briefing on the subdivision and site plan application from Machel Baker of Sevan Multi-Site Solutions this past Wednesday.
The Lowe’s in question has a 12.74-acre parcel at 4825 Route 30, which the proposed Jiffy Lube is looking to lease a 0.72-acre lot from.
No curb cuts would be implemented to allow direct access from Route 30. Instead, traffic for the shop would flow through the Lowe’s property from a signalized intersection at Route 30 or from Wallins Corners Road.
Adam Yagelski, the town’s engineering consultant, said that several variances will need to be obtained from the Zoning Board of Appeals, such as side yard and lot width area variances.
The plans may also cause Lowe’s building to exceed the town’s 25% lot coverage limit by reducing its parcel to 12.03 acres, leaving the resulting lot coverage at about 30% based on the submitted sketches.
If constructed, the Jiffy Lube would join several other service centers on Route 30, including a recently approved Take 5 Oil Change.
“It seems there is a lot of information to still consider,” said Chairman Alex Kuchis.
