Hearing tonight for public input on goals, objectives
The Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Planning and Zoning Commission will have a hearing tonight, Thursday, July 14, to get public input on possible changes to the goals and objectives of the current Comprehensive Plan. Anyone who wants to speak will get three minutes, and written comments may also be submitted. The hearing on the land-use plan’s goals and objectives will begin after the Planning Commission considers action on three other requests during tonight’s meeting, which begins at 6:30 in the third-floor courtroom of the Woodford County Courthouse. An amended final development plan would reduce the square-footage of a planned More Than A Bakery industrial facility at 570 Big Sink Pike from 228,500 to 176,305 square-feet. The amended plan also shifts an entrance/exit to align with Woodford Youth Soccer Association’s access on Big Sink Pike. A development plan would allow Bowling Green-based Houchens Industries to open a Jr. Food convenience store on Lexington Street near the old Woodford County Middle School building in the now-vacant Equestrian Park development. The 10,000 square-foot store will also have a Schlotsky’s Café & Bakery or Subway drive-through, and gas pumps for eight fueling stations. A final record plat creating two lots on commercial property (known as Versailles Center) along the U. S. 60 Bypass at Lexington Road is also scheduled to come before the commission tonight. According to approved plans, a Holiday Inn Express will be constructed on 2.376-acre lot at 365 Commerce Drive. An adjacent .945-acre lot will serve as a detention basin for the commercial property.
