Living quarters proposed for training center
A zone change request that would allow a barn with living accommodations for riders using a horse training center on West Leestown Road was sent to the Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Zoning Commission. Because the property at the Franklin County-Woodford County line has been rezoned to residual farmland, applicant 3 Creeks Training Center, LLC, must downzone the property at 4598 West Leestown Road to A-1 (agriculture) in order to have a residential use, Planning Director Pattie Wilson told Technical Review Committee (TRC) members on Tuesday morning. "What we're trying to do is develop a training center for eventing (horse and rider competitions), things like Rolex," said James O'Brien, speaking on behalf of 3 Creeks Training Center. "And we have interest from people from England. We currently have people from Barbados on the property." He said having living accommodations in a barn would allow riders to stay with their horses, which they like to do when training for competition. "It's our intention to keep in agriculture," added O'Brien. "We're going to keep it for horses." He said four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a kitchen are living accommodations that are planned in the barn. A public hearing on the proposed zone change could happen as early as the next Planning Commission meeting on Thursday, Oct. 12, at 6:30 p.m. in the second-floor courtroom of the Woodford County Courthouse. Plats reviewed TRC reviewed three plats and sent those requests onto the Planning Commission chair for approval. A minor plat for an in-family conveyance will allow John and Mary Don Coyle to convey a one-acre lot at 4310 Fords Mill Road to their son, William Matthew Coyle, and daughter-in-law, Jordan Lynn Molla Coyle. A parent tract of 14.343 acres will remain after the conveyance. An amended subdivision plat will allow property owners Justin and Holly Branham to create four single-family lots at 182, 184, 186 and 188 Spring Run Road. Three townhouse units were previously approved for the site. A minor plat for an in-family conveyance will allow Amelia T. Dunn (wife) to convey a 5.005-acre lot at 6450 McCowans Ferry Road to Earl Graham Dunn (husband). Construction plans TRC sent construction plans for three apartment units at 119, 121 and 123 Garnett Court to the City of Versailles Public Works Department and Woodford County Engineer Buan Smith for letters of approval before a grading permit can be issued and construction can begin. No action was taken on construction plans for 12.488 acres (Norma's Forever, LLC) adjacent to Daisy Hill Senior Living along Lexington Road. With more information and drainage calculations for this specific site, TRC members agreed to review construction plans at its meeting in October.
