Commission considers zoning request

Thursday, October 14, 2010

A map amendment has been filed to rezone property at the corner of Hickory Point and Valerian drives adjacent to and south of Hickory Point Mall.

On Oct. 28 at 6:30 p.m. in Village Hall, the Plan Commission will review a request from developer Jeff Hoyt to rezone lot 11 of Hickory Point Park subdivision from R-1 single family residential to R-3 multiple-family residential. Hoyt wants to build an upscale two-story executive apartment building on the lot. The commission is charged with deciding if a multi-family building is appropriate for the site, according to Village Clerk Kathy Mizer.

An R-3 zoning allows for the development of residential dwellings which could include single-family units or multiple family apartments with 12 dwelling units or less. Village Administrator Heather Kimmons said Hoyt hopes to construct eight units, each approximately 1,200 square feet, on the treed lot. Plans include preserving all but three of the trees as well as a 12-foot hedgerow.

That same evening, Commission members also plan to review three separate special use permit requests; two for signage and one for an enclosed dumpster. A free-standing sign for Power Wash Services will be the commission's focus central to Aspen Dental's recent purchase of a vacant lot where the sign is located. The dental company plans its own signage once its building is constructed. Also, the Village Antique Mall seeks a special use permit to modify a non-conforming sign. In the third request, owners of Mi Jalapeno restaurant on Rt. 51 want the Village to waive an enclosure requirement for a grease dumpster.
