Warehouse case is delayed again

From Staff ReportsFebruary 27, 2008 

— The twice-continued case of neighbors versus a Morreene Road warehouse came before the Durham Board of Adjustment Tuesday. It was continued again.

The third continuance came after about 90 minutes of discussion among the board and attorneys for the city, the neighbors and SunRay Properties of Charlotte over whether the board had jurisdiction in the case, and exactly what the issue at hand was.

Two members of the board indicated they would have to leave the meeting early, so attorneys representing the neighbors requested continuance until March 25.

Some residents in the area of Morreene Road and Linden Terrace are appealing a city planning department interpretation of the zoning ordinance that allowed SunRay to construct a 13,008-square-foot building, primarily warehouse space, in their neighborhood.

Since their appeal was filed in October, the prospective tenant, D&L Parts, has located elsewhere. SunRay has listed the building for sale, but neighbors want it removed.
