Planning and zoning

Development plan delayed until June


The proposed multifamily residential development west of the Davidson Run subdivision won't be on the Hilliard Planning and Zoning Commission's May 8 agenda.

Connie Klema, an attorney representing Vision Development, said May 5 the developer would not formally present its plan until at least June 12.

Vision Development plans to build 381 multifamily residences on 15.9 acres north of Davidson Road and east of Interstate 270.

Klema said Vision Development officials considered input from meetings with residents and Hilliard staff members and "went back to the drawing board."

"We will continue to meet with staff and finalize our (development) plan," Klema said.

Klema said she would meet at least once more with residents from Davidson Run.

The meeting should be before the end of May so the plan can be presented June 12 to the planning and zoning commission, Klema said.

The residential development is part of an overall development plan for the 47.6 acres owned by Wolpert Enterprises. The land currently is in a B-3 commercial zoning district.

Vision Development is proposing the 15.9 acres be rezoned for multifamily residences; 4.6 acres would be dedicated for the public right of way required to connect Trueman Boulevard to Edwards Farms Road; and 27 acres would remain a commercial zoning district.

A few items are still on the commission's May 8 agenda.

Among them will be a conditional-use permit for a new 3,300-square-foot Wendy's restaurant and drive-thru at 4245 Cemetery Road. A sign variance for the restaurant also will be considered.
