Pull-A-Part seeks to open 2d Ky. facility

PITTSBURGH — Pull-A-Part LLC is planning to open its second facility in Kentucky.

The used auto parts retailer will go before the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Planning Commission May 23 in an effort to have a 20-acre site in Lexington rezoned from light industrial use to heavy industrial use. The company also is seeking a conditional-use permit to open a vehicle recycling facility.

An application was filed under the name MMA Management LLC. A hearing originally was scheduled for April but was delayed at the applicant’s request, according to a planning commission spokeswoman.

The zoning committee has made no recommendation, but the planning staff has recommended that the property not be rezoned as it is does not conform to the county’s 2007 Comprehensive Plan. However, the planning staff has recommended that the conditional-use permit be issued if the rezoning is ultimately approved.

Pull-A-Part has indicated that it would decommission vehicles at the site and hold them for about 90 days before selling to a shredder.

The Atlanta-based company, which has 25 locations, could not be reached for comment.
