The city’s planning commission voted on Thursday to deny a Madison Avenue business from demolishing an adjacent home on Victoria Avenue for additional parking.
The realty company that manages the property of Premier Physicians, at 15000 Madison Avenue, also owns the double-family home to the north of the office’s existing parking lot.
The proposal sought to demolish the home.
The planning commission unanimously voted to deny the conditional use permit.
A couple neighbors attended the meeting to express some concerns about the proposal, as did Ward 2 councilman Tom Bullock.
“I would ask for you careful consideration,” he urged.
Dru Siley, the city’s director of planning and development, pointed out that the commission had denied similar requests in the past to prevent “continued encroachment” into a neighborhood.
