New hotel, fast-food eatery get approval

Posted

Members of the Cleveland Municipal Planning Commission approved a number of items on this month’s new business agenda, and two development plans were on the consent agenda provided by Senior Planner Corey Divel.

Among the items were plans for a new hotel and a fast-food restaurant along Paul Huff Parkway, adjacent to the Target Center shopping mall. There was also the approval of a billboard near the mall.

SJK Hospitality LLC asked site plan approval for the development of a proposed Best Western Glo Hotel within the Interstate Gateway Corridor Overlay Zone.

The hotel will be centrally located in the area of other hotels/motels on the south side of the parkway.

The other development in this area is a site plan by Hometown Folk LLC for development of a Burger King within the I-75 corridor. This proposal is for property already located in the area.

Burger King is planning to use the old Wendy’s property for its restaurant. The building will remain much the same, with some upgrades and aesthetic changes. Wendy’s moved from this location to property just to the west.

In other consent agenda items:

• The Planning Commission approved a request by Larry Wilson for preliminary plat approval of Enclave at Weeks Drive. This property is located on Weeks Drive N.E. and is zoned R2 Low Density Single and Multi-family residential. The plat is by Cleveland Surveying.

• Also approved was a request by the Bank of Cleveland for a preliminary plat for Cottage Stone Lane Townhouses. This property is also zoned Low Density Single and Multi-family Residential, and the plat is by Dennis Gore.

• A preliminary plat for a revised lot in Stonebriar Subdivision on Stonebriar Drive and Old Tasso Road was approved. This property is zoned General Commercial, the plat is by Cleveland Surveying, and a variance is required.

• A request for preliminary plat approval for Henderson Place Townhomes on Henderson Avenue was approved, but will require a refiling due to an internal office error. Zoned Professional Institutional, the plat is by Brown Surveying.

• Ted C. Moss was requesting final plat approval of Ocoee Landing Townhomes, lots 29-31. The property is located on Emmyllie Court, is zoned Planned Unit Development, and the plat is by Brown Surveying.

New business:

• The Planning Commission approved a request by John Sheehan Jr. for a final plat for The Pointe at the Farm. This is the expansive development planned along North Lee Highway, and is zoned Plan Unit Development. Cleveland Surveying submitted the plat, and developer Tom Cate addressed the commission.

There continues to be discussion with the state on the front area roadway of the development along North Lee.

• Approved was a request by adjoining property owners for abandonment of excess right-of-way along Linden Drive S.E.

• The commission approved consideration of a rezoning request of approximately five acres (four-plus parcels) in Unity Subdivision on Unity Drive. The property had been left Light Industrial, but is being rezoned to R2 to enabled it to be developed. Three surrounding parcels were left Light Industrial, but could be rezoned, according to the wishes of the property owners.

• Approved was an amendment to PUD 6, located at Cleveland Towne Center, for expansion of a huge billboard.

• The final approval was consideration of an amendment to the zoning ordinance concerning the use of climate controlled storage in the General Commercial Zoning District.
