Lexington Road residential plan on Nov. 8 agenda
The Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Planning and Zoning Commission could make a recommendation on a proposed mixed-use development on Lexington Road with 691 residential units Thursday, Nov. 8. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the second-floor courtroom of the Woodford County Courthouse.
During a public hearing in October, a neighboring property owner argued a plan to add 691 residential units in this area places a burden on city services, and that number should be reduced “to a manageable level so Versailles can maintain its unique integrity and not become just another bedroom community of Lexington.”
The commission closed the Oct. 11 hearing, but did not make a recommendation to Versailles City Council, on the request from 2101, LLC (Trey Schott) to rezone 68.467 acres at 2101 Lexington Road from A-1 (agricultural) to B-4 (highway business) and R-4 (high density residential).
An attorney representing the property owner told the Planning Commission during the October hearing that “Woodford Place” – formerly known as Backer Farm II – would bring much-needed diversity of housing types to the area.
An approval by city council would allow the property owner to move forward with plans for 600 apartment building residential units, 67 townhouses and 24 patio homes, and two commercial lots on land closest to Lexington Road.
A public hearing is scheduled to hear a zone change request and preliminary development plan for 1132 Georgetown Road (Ky. 341). If approved by the Midway City Council, 137 acres would be rezoned from A-1 (agriculture) to I-1 (light industrial) for future industrial users on the Midway Station property, located north of Midway near the I-64 interchange.
The Planning Commission will be asked to approve a final development plan for 670 McKinney Avenue, which will allow a new industrial company to locate on the Midway Station property.
Midway U. field house
A development plan to construct a field house on the campus of Midway University is scheduled to come before the Planning Commission.
The facility will house an auxiliary gym for intramural programs, and provide additional space for practices and as a special event venue for meetings and campus gatherings, according to the university. The complex will have a weight room and cardio room for students, two additional locker rooms and offices, the university stated.
A final record plat for nine residential lots and Crabapple Road, the street in Rose Ridge subdivision where they’re located, is scheduled for possible commission approval.
