Owner requests business zoning for corner of West Main and Tates Creek

Register Staff Report


The owner of three lots at the corner of West Main Street and Tates Creek Avenue wants the property rezoned from R-1B (Single-family Residential) to B-1 (Neighborhood Business).

The addresses are 804 and 808 W. Main St. and 112 Tates Creek Ave.

The corner across Tates Creek Avenue, occupied by a bank, already is zoned for commercial use, as is a neighboring property on Tates Creek that is home to a hair salon.

The request will be reviewed this evening as the Richmond Planning Commission meets for its monthly work session, 5:30 p.m., at City Hall.

The planners also will review zoning for property at 1367 Boggs Lane that is being annexed into the city, according to Jason Hart, city planning director. The property county zoning is UC-7 (Urban Agricultural), but the planning commission is required to give the city commission a recommended zoning to the city commission, Hart said. The requested zoning is B-3 (Highway Business).

Also tonight, the planners will get their first look at a proposed site development plan for National Equipment Sales at 417 Farris Parks Blvd. off the Martin Bypass.

The commission also will revisit its findings of fact in the rezoning request for 132 and 138 S. Killarney Lane, according to the meeting agenda.

On March 27, the planning commission voted 4-2 against rezoning the two lots from a business classification to R-3 (Multifamily Residential) that would have allowed construction of apartments.

Also on the agenda is general discussion of a dedicated right of way off Bryson Way in the Southpoint subdivision off Berea Road not far from Clark-Moores Middle School.
