Residential plan, zone change sent to Planning Commission
A zone change request that may allow a developer to increase the number of residential units on five acres at 174 Abbey Road, along Falling Springs Boulevard near Woodford County Middle School, was sent to the Planning Commission by the Technical Review Committee (TRC) Tuesday.
An amended preliminary development plan proposes 34 townhouse units, which an engineer for developer Anderson Communities told TRC was the rationale behind the request to rezone the property from R-1C (single family residential)/planned unit development to R-4 (high density residential)/PUD. He also acknowledged that the number of units may need to be reduced in order to meet the townhouse ordinance.
“I can’t tell from this (preliminary plan) if it will meet our townhouse ordinance ... and it has to,” Planning Director Pattie Wilson told TRC members. “So if this goes forward and they (the developer) ... find out they can’t meet the townhouse ordinance, it’ll have to come back to this body and to the Planning Commission.”
Wilson also pointed out that an approved preliminary subdivision plan already allows the developer to build 31 townhouse units, and the amended plan seeks to increase that number.
She said the proposed townhouse neighborhood would expand an existing residential development to the north.
A final development plan for a 15,021 square-foot building at 1290 Crossfield Drive was reviewed and sent to the Planning Commission for approval. A credit union branch will occupy the proposed one-story building that will be constructed on the B-4 (business) lot at the corner of the U. S. 60 Bypass, according to the development plan.
Thirty-one parking spaces are proposed for the site.
Construction plans for the Hunter Field House on the campus of Midway University were forwarded to the City of Midway and its engineering consultant for approval before a grading permit will be issued.
Two tennis courts are being removed to create a site for the field house near the university’s student center. An auxiliary gym and weight/cardio room are among the athletic facilities that will be housed in the building.
An amended final record plat for 670 McKinney Avenue in the Midway Station industrial park seeks a waiver so a sidewalk does not have to be constructed as required by ordinance.
The plat for an industrial user was reviewed and sent to the commission, which can waive the sidewalk requirement.
Delaney Ferry Road
An amended plat consolidating 1.552 acres (Charles M. Goins estate) with 2.977 acres to create a 4.562-acre lot at 2570 Delaney Ferry Road (Charles T. and Linda Goins) was reviewed and sent to the commission’s chair for approval.
