SCHERERVILLE | Midwest Pipe Coating is planning to use property at 812 Kennedy Ave. for storage purposes.

The Board of Zoning Appeals last week approved three variances the company sought for the project.

With the approvals, Midwest Pipe Coating can have an open storage area without fencing around it, the project can proceed without landscaping and a gravel surface can be used for the storage area.

Gary Torrenga, who represented the company during the BZA meeting, said some areas of the property could be paved to avoid damaging Kennedy Avenue with gravel from the storage area.

Although the project wouldn't require landscaping, Midwest Pipe Coating would plant trees on the property, Torrenga said.

After Midwest Pipe Coating purchased the property, it determined the majority of the land is considered wetland, Torrenga said. No pipe would be stored on the wetland portion of the property, he said.

Midwest Pipe Coating would shuttle pipe to the storage area from its existing location, which also is on Kennedy Avenue.

Town Manager Bob Volkmann said the town is in the design process for a new traffic signal that would be erected at Kennedy Avenue and Division Street.

Volkmann said that signal would benefit Midwest Pipe Coating when it shuttles pipe to the open storage area.
