Board ponders proposal

Pulaski County Board of Supervisors will consider Monday night whether to accept a recommendation by the county’s planning commission to allow a pool parlor and game room in Fairlawn.
Ellen Linkous is requesting a special use permit (SUP) for “billiard parlors and pool rooms” in a commercially-zoned building at 7318 Pepper’s Ferry Boulevard, which is the same building that houses U.S. Cellular and the Flowers Bakery store.
Last Tuesday night, the planners recommended the permit be approved.
It is up to the supervisors whether to approve the permit.
Monday night’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the board’s meeting room in the County Administration Building on Third Street NW in Pulaski.
According to a planning staff analysis contained in the planning commission’s meeting packet, Linkous “plans to open and operate a public game room intended for family entertainment.”
The analysis goes on to say that she “has expressed she will not allow gambling, alcoholic beverages, tobacco products of any kind, and no loud or abusive language on the premises.”
In addition to pool tables, the game room also is proposed to have ping-pong tables, pinball machines, checkers, cards, dart boards and a juke box. General conversation seating areas also will be provided.
The business also will sell billiard supplies and accessories.
Elaine Hite and Bonnie Bradberry, owners of the building in which the business would be located, submitted a letter to the county supporting Linkous’ plan, saying they think the business would be “a family-oriented, respectful establishment.”
Hite points out that the lease requires any establishment on their property to be lawful and to meet requirements of county ordinances.
“We feel a game room will be an enjoyable entertainment environment for the community,” Hite adds.
Other items on the agenda Monday include:
• A petition by Michael D. and Teresa K. Mooney to rezone 4101 Quail Valley Drive from Residential (R) to Agriculture (A1) to conform with the use of the property since zoning was imposed;
•recognition of featured employees;
• citizen comments;
•highway matters, including concerns of citizens and supervisors;
•appointments to various boards, committees and authorities; and
•consent items, including a resolution commending the life and service of H.W. Huff who died last week, a request for proposal for an indoor recreation center and legislative requests for the upcoming session of Virginia General Assembly.
The session convenes Jan. 14 in Richmond.
