Two conditional use applications for buildings in Lafayette Hill on agenda of the Whitemarsh Township Planning Commission

On the May 14th agenda for the Whitemarsh Township Planning Commission are two conditional use applications involving two buildings along Germantown Pike in Lafayette Hill (Whitemarsh Township).

The first application involves 644 Germantown Pike. The property owners, Robert and Arlyn Landow, are seeking the conditional use to allow a personal service shop, specifically a hair salon, on the first floor of the building which has recently been used for office space. The second floor of the building would continue to be office space.

The second application is similar to the first. A chiropractor, Dr. Zachary Dillow, is seeking to convert space that was last year approved for a residential uses into his office. The second flood would still be utilized for apartments.

A conditional use is when a use for a building is allowed as long as the applicant can show that it has met certain conditions. The planning commission reviews these applications and makes a recommendation to the township’s board of supervisors. A hearing is scheduled for these applications during the June 13th meeting of the supervisors.
