Edison Road, South Bend, Ind.) <br />This being the time heretofore set for public hearing on the above ordinance, proponents and <br />opponents were given an opportunity to be heard thereon. Mr. Douglas Carpenter of the Area <br />Plan Commission stated that this ordinance originally passed on September 17, 1970 but, with <br />no action taken thereafter, the property reverted back to its original zoning; time limit is <br />one year. The petitioners requested a 12 month extension from the Area Plan Commission and <br />an extension is not permitted so the staff initiated action for the petitioners. The situa- <br />tion was further complicated by the change of the Postal Department from a Government agency <br />to the Postal Corporation. After proper advertising of the petition, the Area Plan Commis- <br />sion voted in favor of passage of the ordinance for this Postal Sub - station. Mr. Carpenter <br />then showed a map of the proposed construction which showed a large building with 17 parking <br />spaces in front; the area in the rear for postal trucks and vehicles, etc. He stated that <br />the present site contains a vacant home and garage. The Postal Corporation is ready to start <br />building soon. He stated the Area Plan Commission recommends in favor of passage for this <br />ordinance. Councilman Reinke asked if the site plan had been altered from the original plan <br />and Mr. Carpenter replied that it had not. Councilman Walter M. Szymkowiak made a motion that <br />this ordinance go to the Council as favorable, seconded by Councilman Janet Allen. Motion <br />carried. <br />
