The Kennesaw City Council on Monday approved two items necessary for a U-Haul facility in the city.
The council unanimously approved an annexation and rezoning request for the 1.49 acres on Cobb Parkway near its intersection with Old U.S. Highway 41. Proposed plans for the property include U-Haul truck and trailer parking, a storage building and RV parking.
The council also approved the purchase of two parcels on Shirley Drive. Original plans were for potential use by the Kennesaw Museum Foundation as additional parking with planned building expansions. However, this need changed, and the Cherokee Street Widening Project has identified these parcels as needed right-of-way for the future CSX overpass.
In other business, the council:
- Authorized the police department to purchase/upgrade handguns;
- Authorized the presentation of service weapons to sworn police personnel upon retirement;
- Approved a temporary use permit for Group of Interested Citizens by applicants John Faulkner and Linda Mackay to sell sparklers in the parking lot lat 2500 North Cobb Parkway from Dec. 26-Jan. 4;
- And, approved a Massage Therapist license for Ivelina Slavovo to work as an independent contractor at the Due West Integrated Health Centeron Pine Mountain Road.
