Rebounderz Indoor Trampoline Arena's zoning hearing board appearance was continued to August Tuesday night.
The locally-owned business is eyeing an opening at the former Berk Wiper building at Valley Forge Road and Eighth Street in Lansdale.
The building is also shared by a branch of Cherrydale Farms, a Quakertown-based seasonal school fundraiser supply shop that was started in Philadelphia in 1907.
The property and building has been owned by JL Holdings, LLC, since buying it for $2.05 million in April 2005, according to Montgomery County land records. The property is assessed by the county at $2 million.
Rebounderz Lansdale owner Jeff Polansky, of Horseshoe Lane, in Montgomery Township, has asked for a special exception to allow a recreational use in an Industrial District. Polansky also needs parking relief, and is asking for 74 spaces instead of the required 150 spaces.
An additional 29 spaces would be available through a shared parking agreement, according to the application.
Zoning hearing board solicitor Greg Gifford said he was not aware of any shared parking issues between Polansky and Cherrydale Farms.
"They had contacted (Lansdale Department of Community Development receptionist) Maria (Lohan) and said, 'Can we get it continued to next month?' I said yes, just show up and formally request it so the board can grant it. It's announced and there's no need to advertise for it," Gifford said.
