A difficulty in constructing this <br /> type of building is that the Village's current parking requirements <br /> are based on retail use rather than display or wholesale use. The <br /> text amendment proposed would essentially provide parking require- <br /> ments similar to, but greater than, that which the Village requires <br /> of retail uses in buildings in industrial zoned areas. In an <br /> industrial area, one parking space is required for each six hundred <br /> square feet after the first four thousand feet, plus one space for <br /> each two employees for those areas of the building devoted to <br /> displays, showrooms and warehousing. The proposed text amendment <br /> would require more spaces than the existing industrial requirement i <br /> by eliminating the "free" four thousand square feet. <br /> Tom Rettenbacher raised concerns about whether the described use <br /> was actually an industrial or business use. Chuck Byrum explained <br /> the use as being business; that there would be storage but not <br /> warehousing. <br /> I <br /> I <br /> i <br />
