Peru approves plans for pet store

Posted by wlpo on July 28, 2010

A pet shop could be coming to downtown Peru.  The owner of Andy’s Pet Shop, which is already located in Peru, wants to buy the duplex at 2228 Fourth Street, knock it down, and build a new pet shop.

To do so requires several variances for the set back, lot size, and parking.  Those variances were approved by the city council Wednesday night.

During a Zoning Board of Appeals public hearing last week neighboring home owners and business owners said they would like to see the new store at that location.  Though it’s a residential area, there are other businesses such as an accountant and cabinet shop.
