Gerald DeBose, owner, appeals to change the use from stores, retail sales, to retail services, a beauty salon and a barber shop, in an existing one-story commercial building, situated on a 60.40’ x 45.63’ corner parcel located in a Multi-Family District on the northwest corner of Superior Avenue and East 114th Street at 11333-37 Superior Avenue; the proposed substitution of a nonconforming use being subject to the provisions of Section 359.01(a) where existing nonconforming buildings and uses that lawfully exist on the effective date of this Zoning Code or of any amendment or supplement thereto, or for which a permit has been lawfully issued, may be continued even though such use does not conform to the provision of the Code for the use district in which it is located, but no enlargement or expansion shall be permitted except as a variance under the terms of Chapter 329. No substitution or other change in such nonconforming use to other than a conforming use shall be permitted except by special permit from the Board of Zoning Appeals, provided that the Board finds, after public hearing, that such substitution is no more harmful or objectionable than the previous nonconforming use in floor or other space occupied, in volume of trade or production, in kind of goods sold or produced, in daily hours or other period of use, in type or number of persons to occupy or be attracted to the premises, or in any other characteristic of the new use as compared with the previous one, as stated in Section 359.01(a); and no parking is proposed where a retail service use requires parking at the rate of one space per 500 square feet and four parking spaces are required according to the provisions of Section 349.04(g) of the Codified Ordinances.
