Wince explained the nature ofthe advertising business,saying no products will be made
there,no customers will visit the office,no signag no noise,no traffic,no nuisance,and f' s_)
no changes will be made except to move in their furniture. There is sufficient parking on- L,rsite.

Mr. Stewart applied the criteria for nonconforming use:
1. The proposed change of a nonconforming use will not increase the burden on
public facilities and service such as streets,utilities,schools and refuse disposal
imposed by the existing nonconforming use. It will not increase these burdens because
the activity ofthe business will be less than the previous use. There are few employees 00 '
and no customers. There are no other uses than the office activities, no products being
delivered or made and there would be a low volume of trash.
2. The proposed change of a nonconforming use will not increase be detrimental
nor disturbing to existing uses in the district and will not entail a use which
constitutes a nuisance or hazard to any persons in the surrounding use district. The
proposed use will not be detrimental or hazardous to others. There would be a lesser
volume of traffic than the previous business.
