Stratford Place subdivision gets approval from Plan Commission

Stratford Place, a 73-lot residential subdivision set for Amos Road, moved one step closer to reality Monday at the city’s Plan Commission meeting.

Following a presentation Wednesday at the Shelbyville Central Schools board, Paul Carroll of Davis Building Group appeared before the Plan Commission at City Hall Monday night to get approval for the Planned Unit Development detailed plan and preliminary plat.

Carroll has been in discussions with the Shelbyville school board over a drainage easement for a detention pond on the north side of the property which borders the Golden Bear Preschool and the school system’s administrative offices.

Carroll told the Plan Commission he expects the school board to vote on the drainage easement at its December meeting.

The Plan Commission approved a favorable recommendation on both the detailed plan and the preliminary plat which will be sent for final approval next month to the city’s Common Council.

In other plan commission business Monday, two rezonings for local businesses were approved.

The Tom and Noell Krughoff-owned property at 32 E. Broadway was rezoned from Business General to Business Central to allow for a second-floor apartment at the property to become a rental property.

The first floor houses the Krughoff’s home healthcare business.

Debbie and Terry Esters own the property at 533 and 535 E. Hendricks St. and needed it rezoned from Light Industrial to Business General.

Terry Esters owns and operates Esters Auto Repair on the site and is retiring and selling the business which will remain an auto repair shop.

Esters will maintain control of the other portion of the property which has a mini-barn sales business.

The Light Industrial zoning designation dated back to when a factory was near that site.
