Plan Commission approves items

Wednesday, August 2, 2006

The Greencastle Plan Commission met briefly prior to Tuesday night's BZA meeting, approving two previously tabled items.

First to receive unanimous approval by the board was a final plat review for the Sgt. Cunningham property, located at the intersection of CR 50 South and Fillmore Road.

The city-owned property has been divided into two developable lots, one approximately 10 acres in size and the other slightly less than 5 acres. Both lots are just to the north of Lear Corporation and DBX Corp.

Greencastle/Putnam County Development Center Director Bill Dory said he is actively marketing the lots for sale to industrial clients.

Meanwhile plans are continuing to move forward for constructing a speculation (spec) building on the larger of the two lots. Last month, Dory received city approval to put the project out for bids.

Also on Tuesday, the plan commission approved a request by Bret Hurley to rezone property at the intersection of Jackson Street and Veterans Memorial Highway to General Business.

Hurley currently operates his paving business but would like to open the building up to other service-oriented businesses who would lease office space. The site is currently zoned Light Industrial.

The board voted unanimously to give Hurley's request a favorable recommendation.

However, the request has to move to the City Council for a final vote before becoming final.

The Plan Commission normally meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of each month at City Hall.
