Tuesday night, the Clayton Planning Board discussed a request by a company to house lottery machines in a vacant furniture warehouse.
IGT Global Solutions Corporation wants to lease 40,000 square feet of space in the 110,000 square foot building that formerly housed Ashley Furniture on US 70 Business. The company would use the space to receive, repackage and ship lottery machines.
The operator would not affect Nick’s Flippin’ Kids, which was granted a special use permit in 2015 to operate in 30,000 square feet of the same building. Special permission is needed from the Town of Clayton to allow the freight movement and warehousing of the lottery machines.
The Clayton Planning Board recommended approval of the request. No one spoke in opposition. The Town Council will discuss the proposal during their January 17th work session then vote on the request during their February 6th meeting.
