Beard Brothers to open a car lot in Peru

Posted by wlpo on May 5, 2014

A grassy lot in downtown Peru will soon be used for selling newer and vintage cars.  Jim and Justin Beard have an auto body shop in Fourth Street and want to use the lot to the east of their shop as a car lot.  The lot is where the old Peru Hotel stood.  The brothers want to put in a concrete parking lot and lights.

Downtown zoning doesn’t allow car lots so they needed to ask city officials for a text amendment and a special use.  They also asked for a variance to put up a new sign.

The city council Monday night approved the requests.
