Planning and zoning commission

JD Equipment building addition approved


JD Equipment, 3727 Park Mill Run Drive, received approval Aug. 14 from the Hilliard Planning and Zoning Commission for a 6,225-square-foot building addition.

Commission members unanimously approved a final development plan for the addition and an accompanying variance to permit the company's desired graphics at the 2.6-acre site.

The addition to the one-story building would include a 4,600-square-foot outdoor display area fronting Interstate 270 and enclosed with a 6-foot fence.

In other business:

• Commission members approved a lot split and a modification to the planned-unit development zoning plan for Heritage Preserve, west of Alton Darby Creek Road and north of Muir Parkway.

The new 28-acre parcel was pared from 117 acres on the north side of Muir Parkway. Both parcels are part of 419 acres for which 405 single-family residences and 282 multifamily residences were approved Feb. 25, 2013, by Hilliard City Council.

The PUD modification of the original plan approved in February allows for a reduction in the parking requirements and increase in building heights.

Mechanical units on rooftops are to be screened to the full height of the unit, not just from specific viewing angles, according to the staff report recommending approval of the modification.

• Commission members approved a development plan for MJC Holdings for a specific subarea of the Square at Latham Park in the 6500 block of Scioto Darby Road.

The proposed revisions would result in a reduction in the number of residential units from 212 to 174, all of which are one- or two-bedroom units, according to the staff report.

The text also was modified to remove a directive that developers specifically market the property to tenants 50 years of age and older.

• Commission members accepted a withdrawal of an application to rezone 15.9 acres north of Davidson Run and east of Interstate 270.

Vision Development had proposed the construction of 381 apartments on the land and required rezoning to do so. The proposed development is part of an overall plan to develop a 47.6-acre parcel and extend Trueman Boulevard north to Edwards Farms Road.
