The city’s newly formed Planning and Appeals Commission on Wednesday approved a conditional use permit for a golf cart repair and sales shop on Stacy Street in Brunswick.

Robert T. Klapp, owner of Golden Coast Golf Carts, plans to move his business from New Jesup Highway to 2027 Stacy St., near the F.J. Torras Causeway, which is zoned as highway commercial. Because of the repair aspect of his business, a conditional use permit is necessary.

The matter will next go to the Brunswick City Commission for consideration at its Sept. 5 meeting.

Klapp is currently in negotiations to buy the building and in his due diligence phase, he said.

If approved by the commission, Klapp’s conditional use permit would require he store all golf carts inside his building during nonbusiness hours and all repair work must be done inside. The Planning and Appeals Commission’s recommendation to approve is also void if he decides not to purchase the building.

The structure at 2027 Stacy St. was formerly a restaurant and has been vacant for several years.
