Pasco City Council OKs new thrift store, subdivision

By the Tri-City HeraldNovember 6, 2012 

The Pasco City Council unanimously approved Monday a new thrift store and the preliminary plat for a 26-lot subdivision on the east side of Road 90.

The thrift store was proposed by Riverview Baptist Church in a small strip mall off of North 20th Avenue behind the Albertsons store. The church stated in a letter that it plans to use the proceeds from the store to support its work around the world, including with orphanages overseas.

The subdivision is planned to include 12 duplexes and two single-family homes or 10 duplexes and two triplexes on 4.7 acres, according to a report to the planning commission.

The council also unanimously agreed to have the planning commission look at how to resolve conflicts between the city code and the operation of auto repair businesses.

Two weeks ago, the council discussed how to handle auto repair shops that are doing auto repair and parts dismantling outdoors.

Common issues with the shops include using public streets to park or store business vehicles and equipment, storing broken-down cars and salvaging parts in public view and letting oil, grease and other fluids drip onto public streets.

The resolution approved by the council Monday asks the planning commission to develop a plan of action and report back by April.
