The Paris Municipal Regional Planning Commission approved three site plans as well as two site plan revisions Thursday night. Prior to the planners’ meeting, the Board of Zoning Appeals approved a special use permit. A site plan for an addition to the former Ted Callicott dental office was submitted by Russell Boyd and approved by the commission. The physician plans to add a 1,148-square-feet addition to the exisiting 913-square-feet building for a total of 2,061 square feet.
The building, which will be for a wound center, fronts onto the Tyson Avenue entrance to Henry County Medical Center. Another site plan was approved for Chris Willoughby for a 2,045-square-feet building with eight parking spaces on Manley Street. A variance for the property was granted by the Board of Zoning Appeals at its July meeting.
Even though planners had previously reviewed a conceptual site plan for the Eiffel Tower Park splash pad, the final site plan could not be approved until the contract was signed so the commission approved it Thursday night. A revised site plan for Campbell Therapy to add seven parking spaces to its property at 309 Commerce St. was approved along with another revised site plan for the Patel Convenience Store on Highway 69 northwest near the intersection with West Wood Street.
Since the original site plan approval, Dharmesh Patel decided to work with the Paris Board of Public Utilities to relocate the water line so he could revert back to an earlier site plan.The revision was approved.
The BZA, composed of the same members of the Planning Commission, earlier approved a special use permit for Mark Atkins for a private K-12 school to be located in the Lee Academy for the Arts building at 402 Lee St.
Any new or relocating school is required to submit such an application.
Since the Lee Academy building has always been a school, offices for the school system and the local academy, no additional requirements had to be met. The special use permit was approved.
