YORK COUNTY — The York County Board of Supervisors approved the authorization of a motorcycle sales establishment, excluding body work and painting, within the Village Square at Kiln Creek Shopping Center.
The board approved the authorization of a special use permit for the shop during its Tuesday, July 20’s meeting.
In a York County Memorandum from July 15, County Administrator Neil A. Morgan said that the owners of Dirty Quads Motorsports & Graphics plan to lease an 8,000-square foot storefront space on a 6.5-acre parcel at the shopping center location of 5005 Victory Boulevard, Suite H, formerly occupied by Dress Barn.
The retail store will offer dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), golf carts, go karts, utility terrain vehicles (UTVs), electric bikes, skateboards, and recreational vehicles for outdoor use.
It will also sell clothing, safety gear, screen print, embroidery and vinyl.
Motorcycle sales are only permitted in the General Business zoning district of the shopping center property through the approval of a special use permit by the board.
Morgan said in the memorandum that the shopping center has ample parking to accommodate the use of motorcycle sales.
The York County Planning Commission considered the application at its July 14 meeting and held a public hearing, at which one citizen asked if the motorcycles would generate noise that would disturb other tenants in the shopping center.
The owners responded that the electric vehicles generate almost no noise.
In the memorandum, Morgan recommended that the board approve the application, as he believed that motorcycle sales would not negatively impact the shopping center or the surrounding area.
