Kemp Mill Beer Wine & Deli seeks approval of U-Haul rentals from County
Kemp Mill Beer and Wine wants to rent 21 U-Haul vehicles, including four cargo vans, one pick-up truck, eight 10-foot trucks, and eight trailers. But the 10-foot trucks apparently qualify as "heavy commercial vehicles" under the County code.
So a special exception must be granted to allow the rentals. The store has community support, with 100 nearby residents and business owners signing a petition to allow the U-Haul use. Now the Planning Board will take up the matter at its meeting tomorrow, September 29.
Planning staff is recommending approval of the use. A County Hearing Examiner will review the matter at a public hearing on October 17.
