Commercial, residential lots approved
Lots for two commercial developments and two residential subdivisions were approved by the Planning Commission at its regular meeting last Thursday, Feb. 8.
A final development plan will create a lot for two proposed one-story office buildings in Equestrian Park (a commercial development on Lexington Street where Woodford County Middle School’s athletic fields were once located).
The Planning Commission also approved a final record plat for commercial lots on property formerly known as Versailles Center, which creates lots on land adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express hotel being constructed near the Versailles (U. S. 60) bypass.
A previously-approved development plan for the site shows a 36-seat restaurant with a drive-through and an 80-seat restaurant with an outdoor patio on a 1.3798-acre lot. No development plans have been submitted for the site’s other lots on Commerce Drive and Kroger Way.
After a hearing with no public comment, the commission approved a second amended preliminary plan for two units of the Rose Ridge residential subdivision off Old Dry Ridge Road. Project engineer EA Partners has revised the layout of remaining vacant lots in the subdivision, which are located in a recently-identified special flood hazard area.
In order for Ball Homes to construct houses and streets in this area, the engineer will need to use infill to increase the elevation of the residential lots with a conditional approval before FEMA maps are revised to show new elevations.
An approved corrected minor amended subdivision plat lowers the floor elevations for 13 condominiums in the Sugartree subdivision off Huntertown Road. A stormwater inlet was lowered to capture water from the downspouts of the condominiums at lower elevations. Commission member Tim Parrot was not present at last Thursday’s meeting.
