A local gym business may be moving to a vacant building on East High Street, according to public documents.
Curves, 620 S. Burnett Road, could relocate to 2415-2417 E. High St., which is currently owned by Security National Bank.
The bank is seeking a conditional use permit to help facilitate the possible sale of the property for the workout facility, according to the documents.
The Board of Zoning Appeals will vote on the conditional use permit at 7 p.m. on Monday at City Hall Forum, 76 E. High St.
City staff has recommended approval of the permit at the .432-acre location.
“It’s good for the stability of the establishment, that they’ll own the property,” said Bryan Heck, the city’s planning and zoning administrator. “It’s good for the East Main corridor to see additional investment and reinvestment in the area.”
Attorney Shane Latham of Gorman, Veskauf, Henson & Wineberg filed the application on behalf of Security National Bank and declined comment for the story.
According to city directories, the building has been vacant since 2005 when it was occupied by American Homepatient Inc., a medical equipment supplier.
“It’ll put it back into a reproductive use,” Heck said.
The East Main corridor has recently seen millions of dollars in investments, including the new Tim Horton’s Cafe and Bake Shop as well as renovations at the Rally’s restaurant and Main Street Comics and Games locations among others.
At the July BZA meeting, the board approved a conditional use permit for a styling salon at 202 S. Belmont Ave., which previously served as a doctor’s office.
