Levelland Zoning Board Approve One Request and Deny Another

The City of Levelland Zoning Board of Adjustment met in a regular meeting on Tuesday.

The board held a public hearing concerning a variance request for a 20 x 20 accessory building to be built at the rear property line with a door facing the alley. Their was no one present to speak at the hearing and the variance request was approved with little discussion for the building to be located at 306 Cottonwood Lane in Levelland.

The board also held a public hearing concerning a variance request for a game room on Avenue G to be located within 300′ of a church and to allow parking spaces currently in place to remain and be in compliance with the city ordinance. It was noted that the current city ordinance states that a game room cannot be within 300′ of a church or hospital. Their are two churches, less than 300′ of this establishment. Under the ordinance, the game room which was established prior to the ordinance would have until April to come in compliance. The ordinance also requires that their be 2 parking spaces for every machine in the business. Currently the establishment has 22 machines and approximately 4 parking spaces in front of the building. It was noted that the parking is not reserved for that business as it is downtown parking. Following some discussion, the board denied the variance request on a unanimous vote.
