Planning Commission Approves Application

The Planning Commission voted unanimously to forward our Conditional Use Permit Application to the Hanover Board of Supervisors with a recommendation for approval. Several commissioners commented on the plan, stating that they like the placement of the building on the site and the style of the architecture.

Michael E.
