Station OK'd for Spence

The Goldsboro Planning Commission Monday night recommended the approval of a site plan for a Sheetz location on Spence Avenue across from Walmart.

The business will demolish two buildings -- formerly Uncle Yammy's Rib Shack and Captain D's -- to build its 6,500-square-foot building with gas canopy and 52 parking spaces.

Sheetz offers gas and made-to-order food within a convenience-store atmosphere at more than 430 locations throughout Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina.

The plan was recommended for approval by a 4-0 vote.

Commission members also unanimously approved the subdivision of a plat for Habitat for Humanity which allows the nonprofit to sell off a portion of its land on South George Street, where Prince Tire operates.

Planning Director Randy Guthrie said it appeared the proprietor of the tire shop wanted to purchase the land from Habitat.

The group also met Monday as the city's board of adjustment to consider a variance of some setback requirements for a property owner wishing to demolish a carport and replace it with a screened-in porch on the north side of Third Street between Herring Street and Cobb Street.

No one spoke during the public hearing on the matter, and the measure was recommended for approval 4-0.

The Planning Commission's recommendations will go before the City Council at its Nov. 5 meeting.
