A used-car business may be coming to Vineville Avenue in Macon.
The Macon-Bibb County Planning & Zoning Commission is expected to consider a conditional-use application Monday to allow auto sales from an existing 2,090-square-foot building at 2995 Vineville Ave. and 147 Speer Ave. The property is zoned a general commercial district.
The applicant, Vito Phalen with Phelan Auto Group, plans to operate a retail automobile sales business with about 25 vehicles for sale, with 10 of those out front and 15 at the rear of the property within a fence. The applicant has an auto broker business on Peake Road. It is not clear from the application if this would be a second location or if the business is moving.
“There will be no automotive repair or servicing at this location,” the commission’s staff report said. “The majority of the sales are generated through auctions and online services, therefore limiting the amount of “walk-up” business.”
The business is expected to have two employees and would be open 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
“The proposed use appears to be in harmony with the surrounding area; however, the site does appear small for the number of spaces needed to conduct business,” the report said.
The meeting begins at 1:30 p.m. in the 10th floor conference room, Willie C. Hill Government Center Annex, 682 Cherry St.
