TALLMADGE — Discussion on plans for a proposed arcade in the city will wait for a month.
Discussion of a requested conditional use permit that would allow the entertainment arcade for adults to open in the city was postponed Thursday. Donald J. Malarcik, the attorney for the applicants, asked the Tallmadge Planning Commission to table consideration of the proposal until the body’s April 5 meeting, a request the planners unanimously approved. In the interim, Malarcik said he intended to submit additional information, provide revised plans with more details about parking and setbacks and address some concerns raised by residents who live near the proposed site, 132 Osceola Ave.
T & T Retail LLC and Tyra Zwick of Canton has applied for the conditional use permit to operate an entertainment arcade for adults on the property, which is owned by BGR Warehouse LLC in a I-1 Industrial District. Malarcik said the proposed establishment would not serve alcohol and adults would be able to play games for a chance to win prizes. There are no amusement arcades currently in operation in Tallmadge, according to the city’s law director, Megan Raber.
The Planning Commission has continued the public hearing to April 5 shortly after 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers, 46 North Ave. That body will determine if the proposed location is zoned for this type of business. If planners give their approval, Malarcik says his clients will then submit an application for an arcade license. The city of Tallmadge, through its law director, would issue a license.
