Ruling on Potential Tattoo Parlor Coming

The city's Zoning Board will hear a number of proposals Tuesday morning.

A number of new businesses and changes could be coming to Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill, depending on how a number of appeals go at Tuesday and Wednesday's Zoning Board meetings.

Here are the following properties that will be discussed at meetings:

7406 Germantown Avenue: New Covenant is looking to expand its existing nursery operation into a full-time service offered to the area's residents. According to the city's planning website, the campus is looking for a use variance that will "permit for an educational facility as part of an existing religious assembly with accessory daycare [facilities] on the same lot within an existing multi-structure complex."

7102 Germantown Avenue: A would-be tattoo parlor is seeking a variance that would allow for the installation of a body art services businesses on the first floor of a single-family dwelling. We've covered this a bit already, but we'll make sure to follow up after the meeting.

229 E Johnson Street: A property owner is looking to turn an existing house into what the zoning board is calling "seven rooming units."

8864 Germantown Avenue: A Chestnut Hill homeowner is looking to add a new one-story garage to their property.

9701 Germantown Avenue: The property owner is seeing a use variance that would allow the erection of two pedestal signs mounted to an existing fence wall.

All zoning meetings are held at 1515 Arch Street, 18th Floor. Check back with Patch for the zoning board's rulings.

Am interested about the tattoo parlor because it would be on the street where I live. And I am all for new ventures, at least it would occupy an empty store front. And if the owners did their research homework, they must have enough data to backup their desire to open a start-up in Mt. Airy. More power to them! If the owners/proprietors of this tattoo parlor are reading, I VOLUNTEER my time a few hours a day to 'man' the front cause the archaic powers-that-be would demand that the front be cordoned off from the back. But the setup would have to allow only my right side facing the front cause my left facial tat might scare people off, since I am a LOL (Little Old Lady)! Good luck to you!
