CLARION – The Clarion County Planning Commission granted preliminary approval at its August meeting to East Brady Properties Inc. for a proposed 1,823-square-foot duplex apartment building.

Owners Arthur Bosetti and Robert Nelson were also approved for relief from the minimum 40-foot front yard, side yard and rear yard setbacks for the property at 328 Kellys Way, the site of the old East Brady Post Office which was recently demolished. The project will include eight parking spaces of 10-feet by 20-feet in size for the development.

Modification applications included building setback distances of zero feet for the front and sides, and a 32-foot rear building setback.

Also at the Aug. 15 meeting, Northland Forest Products Inc. received preliminary approval for a land development application covering construction of a lumber kiln drying facility. Northland presented the basic plan at an earlier meeting of the planning commission for information purposes only.

The developer plans to construct nine buildings with a storage yard at the 120-acre site in Clarion Township. A new 30-foot wide access entrance will serve the site from Township Route 556. No modification applications were needed for the proposal.
