Zoning board approves tavern expansion

June 12, 2002|by MARLO BARNHART

CLEAR SPRING - The owner of the Silver Belle tavern has won approval from the three-member Clear Spring Board of Zoning Appeals to expand into a house next door.

The three new members of that board on Tuesday reversed an earlier denial of the expansion that had been sought by owner Carolyn Staley, according to Town Mayor Paul Hose Jr.

The current board is made up of Kurt Kayser, Mike Johnson and Gary Gruber, Hose said.

The Silver Belle tavern is at 236 Cumberland St. With the approval, Staley will be able to place four tables with seating for 16 people, a handicapped restroom, a cooler and storage in 238 Cumberland St.

In a letter to Staley in February, the former zoning board said the current tavern location was already a nonconforming use that was permitted only by a special exception.

The previous zoning appeals board had been made up of Hose, Councilmen Gary Grove and Mason Mundey.

Hose said Tuesday the new board disagreed with that decision and approved the expansion.
