Union hears first reading on Storypoint zone change, swears in new personnel, to rebid street project

The City Commissioners for the City of Union held a first reading to move forward a zoning change request by Storypoint, LLC this week.

The change, based on a recommendation from the Boone County Planning Commission, moves a 14.1 acre site located to the south of the new Kroger Marketplace construction to move from a suburban estates/Union town overlay zone designation to a public facilities/planned development (pf2/pd) zone designation.

The first reading of an ordinance to approve this change was held at the meeting. 

A final vote on the ordinance is set for the meeting on September 5.

Several members of the community, both for and against the zoning change and proposed development, were in attendance and addressed the commission with concerns.  Representatives from Storypoint, LLC and the Boone County Planning Commission also presented evidence and answered questions regarding the proposed development.

In additional business, Mayor Larry Solomon conducted the official oath of office for new City Administrator David Plummer and City Clerk Donna Wahoff, who were recently hired to those positions for the City.  The Commission also selected Tuesday, September 5, as the special meeting date for the September commission meeting, to avoid a conflict with the Labor Day holiday.

The Commission also reviewed several public works items, including a proposal to rebid a road repair project on Sweet Harmony Lane.  Due to unforeseen issues with the subgrade on this street, the project requires more extensive repairs than originally bid in the summer bid process. 

The commission approved a proposal from the Public Works Committee to rebid the project based on the new findings.  The bid documents and information will be made available in the next week for potential bids.
