Planners won’t OK subdivision until E. Blue Lick lane documented

 SHEPHERDSVILLE – Planners were in agreement with a couple of rezoning requests geared toward commercial development; however, they would not give their seal of approval to a new apartment complex.

The Bullitt County Joint Planning Commission tabled a subdivision review for Brooks Crossing LLC.

The developer plans to build a major apartment complex on East Blue Lick Road across from the McDonald’s in Hillview.

Engineer John Miller said that the plat did not show the turn lane on East Blue Lick Road, which was part of the rezoning approval.

Miller said the state Department of Transportation had not approved the third lane to run from John Harper Highway to Centre Drive. Without approval, the lane was not shown on the subdivision plat.

However, planning commissioner Larry Watkins said he wanted to see it on the filed document since it was a condition of the rezoning.

Miller said the change would be made and the matter would be discussed at the May 9 meeting.

In other zoning cases:

*Publishers Printing Co. received a favorable recommendation on its request to rezone 1 acre from B-2 Central Business to IL Light Industrial.

Attorney John Wooldridge said the company would build a larger storage facility on the tract of property which runs along the railroad tract just south of Adam Shepherd Parkway.

There is no start date and final approval will be needed from the Shepherdsville City Council.

*Frisch’s Restaurant could have a new neighbor if the Shepherdsville City Council approves.

The Cincinnati-based chain is seeking to rezone .49 acre between its restaurant and PNC Bank on Adam Shepherd Parkway.

The plan is to sell the property for a Valvoline quick lube facility.

While it does not meet the comprehensive plan, it is surrounded by other businesses.

The rezoning would change the classification from B-2 Central Business to B-1 Highway Business.

To make the business work with the B-1 setbacks, a couple of variances were approved by the Board of Adjustment.

*Juanita Neal received a favorable recommendation to rezone 4.9 acres from Agricultural to R-1 Residential.

Attorney Mark Edison said his client owns 52 acres in all off Twin Oaks Drive and wants to give some land to her son to build a home.

He said there had been a lot of changes in the area and it is more suitable for residential uses.

The next meeting of the Bullitt County Planning Commission will be on Thursday, May 9, at 7 p.m. in the Nina Mooney Courthouse Annex. The public is invited to attend.
