I hope I'm not dipping in the well one too many times, but I would love opinions on a question I am having trouble answering. Can you all tell I am completely alone in the planning dept in my city?
A woman owns a two family in a residential district that is adjacent to a bank in a commercial district. She would like to rent parking spaces to the bank. Parking areas are allowed in the residential district, but banks are not. She also wants to allow the bank to store records in her basement - which the bank would be able to access from a seperate door. I just have no idea what to tell her. My first instinct is to say no - since commercial uses are prohibited in the residential district, so are accessory uses that go along with the commercial uses.
