Here’s the recap of the Nov. 10 City of Greenville Board of Zoning Appeals meeting:
Approved: Later hours, outdoor patio
On The Roxx, LLC, applied for a special exception permit to operate a bar/nightclub after midnight in an MXS-D zone (shopfront downtown district) and add an outdoor patio to the facility.
On the Roxx is a bar/restaurant located at 732 S. Main St. in Greenville.
The patio’s location would require at least a five-foot easement to accommodate an exit.
The board approved the outdoor area, but required On the Roxx, LLC to have the right of ingress and egress granted by adjacent property owner Weekes Construction and submitted to the city.
The matter of the special exception permit arose after the business had a partial change of ownership. The person who departed the company held the special exception permit, which is non-transferable.
The board unanimously approved this application, with an amendment requiring the business to retain an off-duty law enforcement officer as an outdoor security person. The board also concluded that the requirement may be reevaluated in a year.
The board elected a new chairman, Ken Betsch of Betsch Associates, an architectural firm on North Main Street. It selected Lauren Rounsville as vice chair.
