Is a variance needed? If so, why? I thought that Conrad Street is identified as a commercial district. I can't imagine a commercial district imposing restrictions upon a flower shop above and beyond whatever building and health codes the city already has in place.

The storefront has had businesses in it for decades and has perfect windows for a flower and gift shop. The EFDC supports this application.

That flower stand was nice. This could be a cool addition to Conrad. Any other retail spots in that building?
Any word on the old pharmacy space? I see they are working on it.
This is the old pharmacy space.
