Planning Commission Can Vote On Permit For CrossFit Remix

The permit for the proposed Speedway service station on Heisley Road will likely remain tabled

Mentor Planning Commission can vote on a conditional-use permit for a new CrossFit Remix gym during its meeting 7 p.m. today at City Hall.

The CrossFit would be at 9372 Mercantile Drive, Unit B, in the city.

It is slated to open Feb. 9, according to its web site.

The facility will offer group cross-training instruction and nutrition programs.

One hour classes will be held from 6 to 7 a.m.., 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Fridays.

On Saturday mornings, three one-hour classes are planned at 8, 9 and 10 a.m.

The applicant has indicated that class size will be limited to about 8 participants.

The classes are focused around high intensity movement exercises such as cardio fitness, strength training, plyometrics, running and rowing.

The permit for the proposed Speedway service station on Heisley Road is also on the agenda.

The proposal was tabled at the Planning Commission's last meeting over traffic concerns and is likely to remain on the table.

Mentor Planning Administrator Ric Spence and the Planning Commission were concerned about traffic near the Heisley-Diamond Center intersection.

Consequently, Spence suggested that -- should the permit for the service station be approved -- that drivers not be permitted to turn left into or out of its driveway.

However, Greg Schunck of Richard Bowen & Associates -- the business that applied for the permit -- said a no-left-turn rule would make it very difficult for business.

As a compromise, it was suggested that Schunck contact Avery Dennison -- which abuts the property -- and request an easement that would allow the property to connect to Avery's driveway.

The property previously had an easement from Avery, Spence said, but Avery bought it back in the 1990s.

Ultimately, both the applicant and Commission decided to table the permit request until Richard Bowen & Associates could discuss a possible easement with Avery Dennison.
