Weirton Zoning Board Approves Request for New Deli on Marland Heights

WEIRTON — Some new life is on its way for a vacant building in the Marland Heights section of the city.

The Weirton Zoning Board of Appeals Tuesday granted two requests from Kensington Investment, allowing a conditional use permit and a setback variance for property at 3901 Brightway. The property previously was home to the Marland Heights Pharmacy.

Jessie Kreig of Kensington Investment explained he had requested the 0-foot setback in order to install at 20-foot-long and 3.4-foot-wide metal awning, which would hang over an existing right-of-way.

“There was an awning on the building,” Kreig said. “It was removed.”

Kreig has announced his plans to open a deli in the former pharmacy building.

Planning and Development Director Jessica Gumm explained the right-of-way cuts through the building’s parking lot, resulting in the need for the variance.

The conditional use permit was necessary as the building is located in a R-1 district.

Board member Bill Frohnapfel made the motion for approval of both requests, which were approved 4-0. “I’m not here to impede progress,” Frohnapfel said.

In other business, the board approved requests from:

∫ John Lemal, 43 Highview Circle, for a variance allowing a 10-foot setback in the rear yard for a deck.

∫ Ronald Ohalek, 337 Booker St., for a variance to permit an accessory structure on a separate lot from the principal structure. Ohalek explained he wants to build a shed on property he recently purchased located adjacent to his home.
