Now that city council has approved the project, the applicant may apply for building permits and prepare for construction.
City council approved plans for a building expansion of Best Cleaners, 8105 Minnetonka Blvd. The business proposes adding an addition to the south side of the building to expand their dry cleaning operations. Landscaping on the site will be improved as part of the project.
The business includes a drive-up window for drop off and pick up. This use requires a conditional use permit (CUP), and a major amendment to the CUP when significant changes are proposed for the site. The variance application is to reduce the west setback from 15 feet to 5 feet, to accommodate the building addition.
- March 20, 2019 — Planning commission held a public hearing on the applications and recommended approval of the project to city council.
- April 15, 2019 — City council approved the conditional use permit and variance applications.
