MONROE, CT — Planning and Zoning Commission members will review an application to build an O’Reilly Auto Parts store at 215 Monroe Turnpike. A hearing will be held in the Council Chambers of Monroe Town Hall this Thursday at 7 p.m.
The 7,453-square-foot O’Reilly Auto Parts store would have 25 parking spaces and a main driveway from Route 111.
Zwally Real Estate LLC, the owner of the property, is petitioning the commission for a zone boundary change from Limited Office Retail (LOR) within a Main Street Design District overlay zone to a Special Design District, and applying for a special exception permit for the site plan.
The approximately 42,298-square-foot property currently has a gravel driveway and a concrete pad among the previously cleared trees, according to the project narrative for the application on file at Monroe Town Hall.
The site would be served by public water, gas and electric, as well as an onsite septic system to be approved by the Monroe Health Department.
Town records show the site was previously served by an existing septic system, Chas Evans, a professional engineer with Bohler Engineering, wrote in the project narrative, adding testing will be done to demonstrate suitability for a septic tank.
The stormwater plan includes a series of roof drains and catch basins, where rainwater would be treated and detained in an underground stormwater infiltration system before being released into the Monroe Turnpike drainage system.
Due to a change in the grade of the property, a retaining wall is proposed along the northwest corner of the site, ranging from two to seven feet in height, Evans said.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts’ site would include an enclosed trash enclosure, a sidewalk for building access and for street frontage along Monroe Turnpike.
