FUNKSTOWN — NeXgen Hobby store owner Mark Gaylor talked to the Funkstown Town Council Monday night about a parking issue — even though his shop might be replaced by a convenience store.
Gaylor said Tuesday that nothing was finalized, but that he was considering moving the hobby store and leasing the 117 E. Baltimore St. site to someone who would open a convenience store there.
Gaylor said he hoped to make a decision within three weeks.
Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. said there used to be a grocery store there.
Gaylor asked the council to approve plans to create a disabled-accessible parking space on the west side of the store that would require access from Baltimore Street, which also is Alternate U.S. 40.
The council voted 4-0 Monday night to approve a curb cut allowing access to the parking space from Baltimore Street, although Gaylor still must submit engineering drawings to the Maryland State Highway Administration for approval.
