CIB Looks For Extension of Variance for Parking Lots

The Capital Improvement Board has operated parking lots on the site of the old Market Square Arena ever since that structure was torn down and replaced by the Conseco Fieldhouse a few blocks away. The lots have never been paved, contrary to City Ordinance. The CIB has been operating legally, since it has sought and received a number of consecutive extensions on a variance that allows these two lots to remain unpaved.

Well the variance ran out last Friday. A bit belatedly, the CIB has filed yet again to extend the variance until May 1, 2011. They continue to operate while 'between variances'. Not exactly legal, but code enforcement won't touch them as long as a variance has been applied for.

The petition number is 2010-MO1-002 and it is scheduled to be heard by the BZA on September 7, 2010.
