Comp. Plan committee to discuss goals, objectives
Members of a Comprehensive Plan committee are scheduled to discuss proposed goals and objectives of an updated land-use plan on Thursday, Aug. 11, following the regular meeting of the Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Planning and Zoning Commission. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the second-floor courtroom of the Woodford County Courthouse. During a public hearing on July 14, Midway Mayor Grayson Vandegrift and others voiced their opposition to a proposed transportation objective to "promote and encourage" an extension of Falling Springs Boulevard to Frankfort Road at or near the intersection of Midway Road. Several people who spoke at the hearing also raised concerns with a proposed revision to a general land development objective that would allow "justified expansions" of the urban services area if that language were added to the updated Comp Plan. Midway Station On the regular agenda, the full Planning Commission is scheduled to discuss and possibly take action on three requests for the Midway Station mixed-use development that's planned on land located north of Midway's I-64 interchange. An amended preliminary subdivision plan for the property will allow developer Dennis Anderson to move forward with a development plan, which shows a convenience store/gas station, restaurant and retail business on three lots along Georgetown Road (Ky. 341). In addition to orienting the commercial buildings towards Georgetown Road and reducing a landscape buffer along the roadway, parking lots are located around the businesses in this revised plan. The mixed-use development was originally planned as a new urbanism neighborhood, with restrictions for such a development no longer being implemented in the revised plan. Final record plats for Midway Station lots at 150 and 100 Ruth Roach Way, 245 Woody Stephens Boulevard, 250 and 300 Lacefield Street, and 681, 661, 641 and 621 Midway Station Boulevard are also on the Planning Commission's agenda.
