Planning Commission Approves Rezoning On Volunteer Drive

Eventual Mixed Used Area To Be Located Across from Fred's

Paris, Tenn.- More good economic news for the city of Paris came at Thursday night’s Paris Regional Municipal Planning Commission meeting where planners approved a rezoning request on Volunteer Drive that will likely lead to a few more retail type stores coming in the future.

The commission approved a rezoning request by Wyatt Owens for property on Volunteer Drive from R-3 to B-1. The property is located across from the Jim Adams Drive intersection and Fred’s. The total area to be rezoned is 3.25 acres. Plans are for a mixed used development with commercial property, such as a strip mall type area on the front part of the property and a residential property on the back half of the property.

Community Development Director Jennifer Morris said there are no finalized plans yet and there will be a public hearing on the rezoning request at June’s city commission meeting. Morris also said she is sure there will be some kind of buffer between the commercial area and the residential area.

Planners also approved a site plan for Henry County Government where an accessory building will be built on property at the Henry County Sheriff’s Office at 210 Forrest Heights Drive.

The proposed building will be a total of 1500 square feet, will be a metal building, and is in the M-1 Light Industrial District zone. All setbacks were in line so it was approved.

Site Plan For Flex Fitness Approved Thursday

Paris, Tenn.- The Planning Commission also approved a site plan for a new business, Flex Fitness, for a near 5K square foot building on Spruce Street. The site is directly behind the Casey’s General Store that is currently under construction. The lot is a 1.5 acre tract and is not designated in the 100 year floodplain.

The property is already properly zoned B-1 General Commercial. The plan includes a proposed 32 regular parking spaces and 2 handicap spaces. Construction mangers for the project said they hope to start construction later this summer and have it finished by late fall, early winter.

Planners also approved a minor subdivision for Mike and Regina Cosby for property located at 1407 North Market Street. The property has been impacted by the acquisition of property by the state for the widening of highway 641 N. The owners wish to remove the property line between two lots for a total of .74 acres.

Daily's Minor Site Plan Approved By Planning Commission

New Restrooms To Be Built on North Side of Building

Paris, Tenn.- At their meeting Thursday night, the Paris Regional Municipal Planning Commission also approved a minor site plan for the Daily’s Convenience Store located at 2504 East Wood Street for the proposed addition of what will be used for new restrooms at the store. The addition is proposed to be 378 sq. feet and will be located at the rear, or north side of the building. The addition will be constructed on existing concrete and will extend 18 feet from the existing building.

Planners were also made aware at the meeting on Thursday night about an alternative drainage plan for the proposed CVS Pharmacy that will be built at Memorial Drive and Mineral Wells Avenue. Staff informed the planning commission that a drainage easement is required from Lowe’s for the water draining into the city’s retention area.

Due to the time frame from Lowe’s, CVS has requested approval for an alternate route as a last case scenario should there be any issues with drainage. CVS requested approval by the Planning Commission to submit a plan to route the current drainage flow across El Vallarta property. The planning commission approved the request for the alternative draining and staff made it clear it would only be put into effect if they are unable to obtain the easement from Lowe’s Corporation.

More from the Paris Regional Municipal Planning Commission on Thursday night saw the approval of a minor subdivision on Grandview Drive. The plat removes the property lines between lots 5, 6, and 7. In addition, a 2.049 acre area from another tract is being combined with the three original lots.

The Planning Commission approved a minor subdivision for property located on East Wood Street. It was noted to commissioners that until just recently the front portion of the property operated for many years as a mobile home park. The plat is presented in four lots. Lots 3 and 4 are landlocked but will not be legal lots unless they are conveyed to an adjoining property owner that has road frontage. The division of property is in anticipation of a land auction scheduled for a later date and the property is 6.11 acres.

Charges to Be Expunged After Successful Completion of Probation

Paris, Tenn.- Judge Thomas Moore of Weakley County presided over the continuation hearings Thursday morning for Henry County Trustee David Stone as he reappeared in court after voluntarily attending rehab.
