RICHMOND — Commercial development in Richmond should see an uptick in 2014 based on proposals the city planning commission will review Thursday evening.
Plans for a Dick’s Sporting Goods in Richmond Centre and a Raising Cane’s fast food restaurant on Barnes Mill Road between entrances to Richmond Centre will be on the agenda when the commission meets for a business session at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall.
Several other items are on the longest agenda the planners have seen in a few months.
Also to be considered is a revised preliminary plat for Woodlawn Crossing in the northwest corner of the US 25/Eastern Bypass intersection where a Walgreens drug store is proposed.
Earlier this year, the planning commission balked at approving the plat unless the developer included a street connection to the adjacent Carriage Gate Shopping Center.
The revision includes that connection as well as the previously proposed right-turn in and right-turn out access on the bypass and in and out on US 25 (Big Hill Avenue) across from Northland Drive.
The Dick’s Sporting Goods store would be located in a Richmond Centre outparcel near Logan’s Roadhouse, according to Elizabeth King of the city planning office.
The Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers restaurant is proposed for the site currently occupied by a chiropractic office at 1140 Barnes Mill Road, she said.
Also on the agenda are:
• A plan for professional offices, 304 Anna Hume Blvd., off the Martin Bypass
• Expansion of a rental storage facility, 6005 Atwood Drive, off the Martin Bypass
• A plan for a Madison County Public Library office building, 112 Fifth St.
• A preliminary plat that would create out parcels in University Shopping on the Eastern Bypass at Lancaster Road.
