Expansion and renovation of pizzeria among applications approved in Batavia

The renovation and expansion of Main St. Pizza at 206 Main St. was among the applications approved by the Batavia Planning Board on Tuesday.

Viele Development & Construction won approval for the project, as long as granite (or a similar material) is used along the bottom of the windows, the lines of the windows are uniform throughout the restaurant, and the entrance door is recessed another 3 feet from the sidewalk.

Other projects that were approved Tuesday:

• Placement of a 6-foot by 6-foot sign on the front of Notre Dame High School at 73 Union St., proclaiming “Welcome to ND, Home of the Fighting Irish.”

Approval was necessary because the sign was much larger than permitted under current R-1A residential use district regulations. Planners gave their OK with the stipulation that because it is for a school, it would not set a precedent should a business owner make a similar request.

• Construction of a 15,000-square foot warehouse addition to the Continental Auto Parts distribution business between Liberty and Swan streets.

Because the company is seeking $182,460 in tax abatements from the Genesee County Economic Development Center, planners Matthew Gray and Rachael J. Tabelski, GCEDC board member and employee, respectively, abstained from voting.

• Expansion of the parking lot and construction and relocation of a dumpster at the Wilmot Cancer Institute at 262 Bank St. The facility is affiliated with the University of Rochester.

A stipulation of the approval is that the project includes landscaping as a buffer from nearby homes.
