Giannillis receive OK from Unity planning commission

| Tuesday, September 6, 2016 8:30 p.m

The Unity Township Planning Commission Tuesday recommended approval of a zoning change for a 4.6-acre parcel fronting Route 30 adjacent to Giannilli’s II Restaurant and Lounge. Owners Dennis and Linda Giannilli requested changing zoning for the property, which is marked by a hilly terrain, from R-1 rural residential to B-2 community commercial, matching the designation for the couple’s restaurant property.

Their attorney, Daniel Hudock, said the revised zoning would be consistent with most other frontage along Route 30 in the township and would open the possibility for a potential expansion of the business. He added that any development of the parcel would retain a topographical buffer between the restaurant and two nearby homes: “There’s always going to be an elevation difference.”

Township Solicitor Gary Falatovich said the proposed zoning change will be considered by the township supervisors in a hearing at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 27.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
