Plans for new industry, McDonald’s, Midway U. reviewed

A subdivision plat creating a 6.402-acre industrial lot at 106 Fieldview Drive was reviewed by the Technical Review Committee (TRC) Tuesday and sent to the Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Planning and Zoning Commission for its approval.

The lot where Visumatic Industrial Products will locate its new facility will be subdivided from property owned by an existing industry, Pilkington North America, Inc. The new tool and die company will employ about 30 workers, said Woodford County Economic

Development Chair John Soper.

A final development plan for Visumatic Industrial Products, which designs and builds specialty automated screw feeding and driving equipment, will also come before the Planning Commission.

McDonald’s remodel

The Versailles McDonald’s restaurant at 102 United Drive will undergo a major remodel, according to an engineer who presented a development plan to TRC.

He said in most cases, restaurants can remain open during a remodel, but not with a major remodel like the one planned for this restaurant.

The restaurant’s footprint will not change significantly, but a two lane, side-by-side drive thru will be a part of the remodel. The Planning Commission must approve the development plan and a letter of approval from the City of Versailles on the construction plans must be received before the remodel can begin.

Midway baseball

A final development plan and construction plans for a new baseball complex on the campus of Midway University was reviewed. A concession stand, press box, batting cages and dugouts are amenities of the complex.

Water and sewer lines will be extended to the baseball field from a new field house being constructed on the Midway campus, according to a Midway University spokesperson. The field will use existing parking spaces, but it was noted during the review of the development plan that additional parking will likely be needed at some point the future, said Planning Director Pattie Wilson.

The development plan will need Planning Commission approval and a letter of approval must be received from the City of Midway before the baseball complex can be built.

Bourbon warehouses

Construction plans for two more barrel warehouses at 1214 Georgetown Road, north of Midway’s I-64 interchange, was forwarded to Woodford Fiscal Court’s engineering consultant for a letter of approval before a grading permit is issued. Brown-Forman Corporation owns the site and the barrel warehouses will store Woodford Reserve bourbon whiskey.

Credit union

Construction plans for a new credit union branch office at 1290 Crossfield Drive were reviewed by TRC and sent to the City of Versailles Public Works for a letter of approval before a grading permit is issued. The project engineer was informed that a raised island and signs need to designate the right-in, right-out only entrance. Also, a waterline issue needs to be addressed, and additional information was requested about a detention basin for storm water drainage.

Rose Ridge lots

A final record plat creating 23 lots in the latest phase of the Rose Ridge residential subdivision off Dry Ridge Road was sent to the Planning Commission for approval. Water and sewer line testing will be needed to be completed before Ball Homes can proceed with this unit of the development, its engineer was told. Also, utility easements are needed to provide service to four of the lots.

Industrial lot

A final development plan and construction plans – once approved – will allow Cooperin, LLC to build a plumbing-related business at 741 McKinney Avenue in the Midway Station industrial park, located north of Midway’s I-64 interchange. A 10,932 square-foot building is planned for the 1.74-acre site, according to the plans reviewed by TRC.

In-family conveyance

An in-family conveyance creating 19.32-acres lots at 6434 and 6394 McCowans Ferry Road (John Marion Walling and Beverly to Kristopher M. Walling and Nicholas M. Walling, sons) was forwarded to the planning commission chair for approval.
