Lakeshore warehouse plan sent to commission

A development plan to construct a 500,000 square-foot warehouse building in Midway Station, located north of Midway's I-64 interchange, was sent to the Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Planning and Zoning Commission. Lakeshore Learning Materials, which sells educational products, plans to locate its new distribution center on 41.981 acres at 547 McKinney Avenue, I-1 (light industrial) zoning district. The California-based company anticipates employing 262 full-time workers and has received preliminary approval for up to $3.7 million in tax incentives. The Woodford County Economic Development Authority will sell the property on McKinney Avenue for $2.5 million, and Lakeshore will spend $21.3 million on construction costs, according to documents released by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority. The Planning Commission has scheduled a special meeting on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 6:30 p.m. in the second-floor courtroom of the Woodford County Courthouse to discuss and take action on the final record plat and development plan for the distribution center. The record plat also creates a .436-acre lot for a water tower at Midway Station. The development plan proposes 350 parking spaces and 135 future parking spaces for Lakeshore's distribution center, with the square-footage of more than eight football fields. The plan was reviewed by members of the Technical Review Committee (TRC) on Tuesday morning. Daisy Hill An amended development plan allowing Daisy Hill Senior Living to construct two duplexes - independent living villas - on its property at 1001 Crossfield Drive was sent to the Planning Commission. A total of 14 catered-units for independent living are planned at Daisy Hill, according to plans reviewed by TRC. In-family conveyance A minor plat for in-family conveyance, which allows Joseph and Kathryn Fallon to convey a 21.981-acre tract of land at 4825 Delaney Ferry Road to son Jackson Fallon, was sent to the Planning Commission chair for approval.
